David Hidalgo, who faces a murder charge in the death of a TCU student Tuesday, was sentenced to 15 days in jail in September 2012 on a charge of assault/bodily injury for an incident in Fort Worth.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit in the case, the incident happened April 18, 2012 in a lunch line at Paschal High School. A 17-year-old girl told police that she was waiting in line to be served when Hidalgo “cut the line behind her” and “pushed her and demanded that she move out of the way.”
The girl said she told Hidalgo to “wait his turn.” They exchanged shoves and the girl was jabbed in the arm with an ink pen, which broke the skin and raised a bruise, according to the affidavit. Hidalgo would have been 20 at the time, but the docuemnt did not describe why he was on the high school campus.
The TCU student, Stewart Trese, died Tuesday of "apparent trauma to the body," police said.
