MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX- While most drivers notice a patrol car and begin to drive more carefully than ever, hoping they haven’t already made a costly mistake, a local man proved to be the exception. Just after noon Saturday, an Oak Ridge North Police Officer was northbound on Blueberry Hill Drive when a Toyota Tacoma pickup suddenly stopped, and then backed up and struck the patrol vehicle!
The incident caused damage to the patrol car, do s DPS Trooper responded. DPS issued the driver, Cole Janik, a citation for Unsafe Backing, but that was the least of his worries. Turns out Janik was driving with a suspended license. What’s more, it wasn’t the first time he was caught driving with a suspended license. It wasn’t even the second time! It also wasn’t the first time Janik had his Texas Driver’s License suspended.
Public Data shows Janik served six days in Harris County Jail in 2013 after pleading guilty to Driving While License Invalid with Previous Conviction / Without Financial Responsibility (no insurance). He’s also racked up two DWI convictions, and his criminal record shows a long list of other charges including drug possession, evidence tampering, terroristic threat, and more. On Saturday, however, Janik only received one citation and one new charge.
Cole Wesley Janik, 35, of Conroe is charged with Driving While License Invalid. The Oak Ridge Officer arrested him and transported him to the Montgomery County Jail in Conroe. Janik has since been released on bond.
