KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Dabrett Black, 32, of Lindale, who’s accused of killing a Department of Public Safety trooper during a traffic stop on Thanksgiving Day was named in an active warrant stemming from a 2014 marijuana possession case.

Black was in the Brazos County Jail Friday, charged with capital murder in the shooting death of Department of Public Safety Trooper Damon Allen who was killed during a traffic stop Thursday afternoon on Interstate 45 near Fairfield in Freestone County.

Black’s bond is set at $500,000.

Black, who previously listed a Killeen address, was arrested in August 2014 for possession of a controlled substance and possession less than two ounces of marijuana.

In December 2014, the possession of a controlled substance charge was dismissed and Black was sentenced to three days in jail and was ordered to pay $200 in court costs, according to online records.

Black also faces warrants for bond forfeiture on an evading arrest charge in Anderson County and for insufficient bond on aggravated assault on a public servant and evading arrest charges in Smith County, according to online jail records.
