LUBBOCK, (KLBK) -- A Lubbock doctor, David Vermillion, was booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center on Wednesday. By Friday, he was able to post bonds totaling $35,000 to get out of jail.
Court records released on Monday said Vermillion was charged with stalking and trespassing.
More than once this month Lubbock County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to a residence south of the Lubbock city limits. Vermillion’s estranged wife had obtained a protective order against him in court.
Officers found him at this own residence which was not far from where his wife was staying.
In an offense report, one officer wrote, “I walked toward the front of the residence and did not see David Vermillion at first.”
The report also said, “As I got closer to the residence I observed a white male lying on the front porch of the residence. The male was crying and rolling around on the concrete.”
Deputies were called multiple times concerning Dr. Vermillion between July 16 and August 10. During one such call-out, Vermillion told officers he wanted to see his children.
A check of official state records showed Vermillion was a doctor in good standing. The Texas Medical Board indicated no past disciplinary action against him.
If convicted of stalking, a third-degree felony, the penalty would be 2 to 10 years in prison or probation.
