On Thursday, October 24th. at 5: PM, Michael Gary Shannon 3rd, age 22 a resident of Hull, Texas surrendered himself to Liberty County Sheriff’s Sgt. Investigator Billy Knox at the Sheriff’ Department on a charge of Manslaughter.

This vehicle crash and the resulting investigation was conducted by another agency but prior to Michael Shannon’s surrender on Thursday, the warrant had not been served. In recent days, Sgt. Knox along with Sgt. Brett Audilet of the Sheriff’s Department had received information that Shannon was in the Beaumont area and a telephone number was provided. On Thursday, October 24th, Sgt. Knox contacted Shannon, by phone, and advised him that a warrant for Manslaughter was outstanding for his arrest. According to Shannon, he was unaware that he had been indicted and that he would come to the Sheriff’s Department and surrender on the charge at 5:pm on Thursday, which he, in fact, did.

Presently, Michael Shannon is in the Liberty County jail and is not eligible for bond.
