On April 6, 2021, deputies with Constable Mark Herman’s Special Operations Unit conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle at Gosling Road and Gosling Oaks Drive.
During the course of the traffic stop, it was discovered the owner of the vehicle, Jarvis Hickerson was wanted for a 2016 Capital Murder case in Harris County and Felony Assault – Impeding Breath. He was not operating the vehicle at the time of the stop but later arrived on the scene. Jarvis Hickerson was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail for his Capital Murder and Felony Assault Impeding Breath warrants. He is being held with No Bond out of the 177th District Court.
According to court records, in September 2016 Hickerson, then 32, killed Amalia Alexander in retaliation after Hickerson beat up Alexander a week before and she filed a protective order on him. On November 30, 2016, she was found in a shallow grave in Montgomery County. Harris County Detectives were able to obtain security video of Hickerson’s truck leaving her apartment the day she vanished with a large object in the back. At the time she was found Hickerson was already in jail for violating the protective order she had filed against him. On July 13, 2017, his bond was reduced to $175000. Then on April 3, 2018, Hickerson wrote a letter to Judge Johnson asking him to look at the case as his court-appointed lawyer was doing nothing. Days later he again wrote the judge asking for a bond reduction. On June 21, 2018, the judge did lower his bond to $100,000. Then on September 24, 2019, he again asked for a bond reduction. On June 7, 2020, he was granted a $100,000 bond and he bonded out. However, he violated the terms of the bond that were set. He tampered with his GPS device, He was also at a location other than his home on March 14, 2021, and then was at a Spring location on Lakota Trail. On March 16, 2021, the Harris County District Attorney asked for the bond to be revoked. Besides the violations already noted he was charged with another felony of assaulting a family member impeding breath, the day prior. The person he assaulted was a girlfriend. She had gone to his apartment to retrieve some belongings when they got into an argument. He then began choking her.
Hickerson has a very long history with the law.
