Ran Over His Head? Somervell County Salon-Glen Rose, Rainbow, Nemo, Glass....Texas


Ran Over His Head?

22 February 2007 at 4:00:33 PM

Got a call this morning from a Glen Rose resident who had been to the meeting on waste injection wells this last weekend in Somervell County. We were talking about gas well roughnecks coming into the county and she told me that the story that was in the Glen Rose Reporter newspaper a few weeks ago about an alteraction at the country western shindig involved a gas field worker. I don't have the paper anymore but basically it was about a fight that broke out a the club, and one man ran over another man with his car; there was some shooting involved, and the shooter tried to hide his gun on the shoulder by the road. My caller said that the guy had run over the HEAD of the other guy.

Anyway, it was quite a lurid tale, but I didn't know it involved roughnecks from out of town.

I am not a resident, but I know the man who caused the problems, Colin Hammett, and I am THANKFUL that he was punished, though not as harsh as we would've wanted if it was our family or friend that was the victim. Please understand though, that not all roughnecks are violent beerdrinkers without common courtesy or manners. This man and his wife and family were trouble to begin with, and they caused trouble with my family. But they just happened to help put a label on an already shady public standing with roughnecks. We live in East Texas, so just about everyone here are roughnecks. Not everyone has the stereotypical attitude and "rawness" about them. MY husband is a roughneck, and I would hope that if he ever had to work there, you would be as kind to him as any other hard working man in your county.

Thank you! :)

Had to look back and see if I used any type of perjorative term about roughnecks. I didn't, but I do know some people who do use *roughneck* as a negative term. I agree with you that not everyone who is a *roughnecK* goes out drinking, etc and speaking only for me, I was being descriptive as to the group and not the type.
