Bishop had been wanted since October 2021, when the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a warrant for his arrest for a parole violation. In January 2022, the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office also issued a warrant for Bishop’s arrest for assault causing bodily injury.

According to Texas DPS, in 2019, Bishop was convicted of three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and received three, three-year sentences.


In 2020, he was convicted of unlawfully carrying a weapon in a prohibited place and sentenced to two years’ confinement. Bishop was released on parole in August 2021. In September 2021, he was arrested in Hunt County and subsequently bonded out. For more information, view his captured bulletin.
