Oakwood Man stabbed at Freestone County Fair

by Vanessa Goodwyn

A county fair is an event intended to entertain area residents with fun and games, and the only screams SHOULD be those on the roller coaster. On Monday evening, June 15th, however, a stabbing occurred at the Freestone County Fair during the horseshoe tournament at the W.L. Moody Reunion Grounds in Fairfield. At approximately 10:10 p.m., Mike Crockett of Oakwood (40) was attacked by Adrian Inderman (51) of Teague. Inderman was disarmed by people in the large crowd of witnesses to the incident, and then arrested by Fairfield police. The stabbing reportedly followed an argument related to Crockett and an ex-family member.

Crockett's injuries included cuts to the left side of his face and body. He was treated first in Fairfield at the East Texas Medical Center and later taken by helicopter to ETMC Tyler. On Tuesday morning his condition was reported as stable and he was released from the hospital later in the week.

Inderman was also taken to the Fairfield hospital for treatment of a cut on his finger, then incarcerated at the Freestone County Jail under charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, according to Fairfield Assistant Police Chief William Rogillio. The incident is under continuing investigation.

Inderman bonded out on Wednesday, June 17.
