A Santa Fe veterinarian has been arrested on charges of rape and sexual battery, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety official.
Troopers and Texas Rangers on Wednesday arrested Todd Michael Glover, 36, of Hitchcock, on a Louisiana-based warrant for rape and sexual battery, said Sgt. Stephen Woodard, spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Prosecutors in the 33rd Judicial District Court in Allen Parish, Louisiana, have filed one count of rape and two counts of sexual battery against Glover, Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset said.
Locally, Glover is being held in the Galveston County jail as a fugitive from justice, Trochesset said.
Dan Krieger, who has represented Glover in previous cases, Thursday said he was helping him work through the state extradition process so that Glover could eventually get a bond.
Officers arrested Glover about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday at a Hitchcock address, Trochesset said.
Eventually Glover will secure in-state counsel on the criminal charges, which Krieger declined to comment about.
State law enforcement and the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office referred questions about the case to Louisiana officials, who did not return multiple phone calls and two emails by deadline Thursday.
