Serbantez said Hall was then transported to the Terry County Jail where he bonded out Wednesday.

On Thursday, Serbantez said Mojica was pulled over for a traffic violation in Brownfield and was arrested and booked on the same charges as Hall.

However, Mojica had additional charges, including deadly conduct discharging a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, violation of driver license restriction, open container and failure to maintain financial responsibility, according to Terry County jail records.
