Last Friday, 15-year-old Alex Dicky of Bryan, was laid to rest. Dicky and two other teens died when their vehicle hit a tree in the early morning hours of August 3rd.
If that wasn't hard enough on the Dicky family, News Three has learned Alex's older brother Wayne was arrested leaving her funeral.
Judicial records show 21-year-old Wayne Dicky's driver's license has been suspended for at least 22 months.
In August of 2007, he was arrested on criminal trespassing charges, for an incident that allegedly occurred in April of 2007, in Brazos County. Criminal trespassing is a class A misdemeanor.
In December of 2007, a Brazos County Constable pulled Dicky over. He was arrested again for driving without a valid license.
In March of this year, Wayne Dicky II failed to appear in court for a hearing on the criminal trespass charge. A warrant was issued in his name with a bond set at $8,000.
He remained a fugitive until August 4th, the day after his sister's car wreck. The Brazos County Sheriff's Office says Dicky turned himself in.
Two days later, on August 6th, a Bryan police officer pulled Dicky over for speeding. Although Dicky's license was suspended and he was previously convicted for driving without a license, the officer gave Dicky a warning because of the extenuating circumstances.
Last Friday, Brazos County law enforcement officers who were attending Alex Dicky's funeral say they saw Wayne Dicky II behind the wheel twice- once as he arrived for the funeral, and another time as he drove in the funeral procession.
The Sheriff's Office says Dicky was arrested as he was getting in a car to drive away from the funeral.
He was charged with driving with an invalid license with a previous conviction or suspension, and bond was set at $20,000.
The Sheriff's Office says the bond company that wrote Dicky's bond on August 4th, rescinded it, and the $8,000 bond was reinstated.
Court documents show the county attorney's office requested Dicky's bond to be revoked and for Dicky to be held in jail pending the outcome of his case.
The 21-year-old was booked into the Brazos County jail and then moved to a jail outside the county, to ensure his safety. Wayne Dicky II is the son of Brazos County jail administrator Wayne Dicky.
Regardless of family ties, Sheriff Chris Kirk said his department "cannot enforce the law selectively."
