Ferguson was arrested with Jeffrey Vann Nichols following a traffic stop Thursday night, February 16, 2017. Ferguson provided a false name and date of birth when questioned by the Forney police department officer (it sounded like it may have been his brother’s identification information). Also, during the traffic stop, an altercation with the Forney officer ensued which resulted in Nichols being tazed.
Ferguson has prior arrests or convictions for burglary of a habitation, criminal trespass, forgery of a financial instrument, and has also been sentenced at least twice to time in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (state jail or prison).
