Mass Crowds at Crystal Beach a Deputy is hurt.
GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A deputy is suffering from multiple injuries Sunday after being hit by a vehicle on Highway 87 during Go Topless Jeep Weekend, according to Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset.
 
At about 1:30 a.m., the deputy was working an accident on the highway at the Holiday Beach subdivision of Crystal Beach when a separate vehicle hit the deputy, Trochesset said.
The deputy was taken to UTMB with two broken legs, a broken arm and head injuries, according to officials. The deputy underwent surgery Sunday morning but their condition is unknown.
 
The driver of the vehicle that hit the deputy was identified as Darius Gilbert.
 
Gilbert was arrested by DPS officers for aggravated assault on a peace officer. He is in jail on a $100,000 bond.
 
No other injuries were reported in this incident, but authorities said multiple people who took part in the event on Bolivar Peninsula were flown to a hospital.
The massive crowd stretched emergency services.
 
Up to 40,000 people attended Saturday's event in Crystal Beach.
 
Galveston County Emergency services said eight patients were flown out and 30 people were taken to a hospital by ground.
Most were minor emergencies, but they were considered two major traumas.

It wasn't so long ago that Jeep Clubs were known for giving and helping out in society.
I'm sure there is still good, but this is crazy.

@Txtoast : Maybe the clubs are fine, but outsiders just show up and do not have the same value system.

@NJ99221 : It's referring to the state of the Jeeps themselves, but the women aren't discouraged.
 
That poor deputy, unless s/he is young and strong, those are injuries that can you leave you permanently affected.
 
As a totally personal complaint, abc13's website is worse than some of the click bait sites I get roped into reading, the ads just take over.

Just don't get it. Topless come on now. Is t there any decency anymore? Girls just don't care. Now we have a police officer that may be injured forever. Do these kids care. Probably not in the least.

@Megyn1 : Relax, the Jeeps are convertibles, they take the tops off because that's beach/off-road culture. As said earlier, the actual clubs are just people out having fun, it's the rowdies joining in that are drunk, injured, and ruining it for the rest.

@Megyn1 : I believe the name was to catch people's attention, and it does
 
"Go Topless Day started out as an idea to get New England Jeep owners celebrating springtime and we wanted to organize a day where we all take the tops off our Jeeps.
We had over 50 Jeep clubs and organizations involved.
 
Go Topless Day has become an annual tradition. What was started by Norm and Jean of All Things Jeep in 2008 has continued year after year to this day. Now, Jeep owners *all across the USA* get together on a specified day in May each year to have fun Jeeping topless.

@Txtoast : aggravated assault on a peace officer? Give me a break. Unless the person was drunk I don't see that panning out. But doesn't say he was drunk. Probably didn't see the officer

@Michael1960 : I don't know about aggravated assault either, but peace officers do their best to mitigate dangers while working an accident. I'm betting the driver didn't see a human being in his path because he was impaired.

@Blackbird : I did see on the news tonight, ch26 did say suspected drunk driver. So I'm guessing they didn't test him because they were busy caring for the officer.

There were many arrests of public intoxication when looking at Galveston County's page.
 
Seems it was the theme of the night.
