The 18-year-old son of Denton County District Attorney Bruce Isaacks was being held in Denton County jail Monday, charged for the second time in less than 14 months with a gun-related crime.
Adam Isaacks is accused of firing a shotgun Feb. 28 in the backyard of his parents’ Carrollton home in the 1500 block of Sugar Creek Drive. According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Adam Isaacks was teaching another man how to shoot the 12-gauge shotgun. Police said the other man, Max White, is about Adam Isaacks’ age but has not been arrested on his warrant yet.
The affidavit said both admitted shooting at a tree in the backyard and “that it was stupid.”
Adam Isaacks declined a jail interview Monday. His father did not return phone calls Monday. His mother, state District Judge Vicki Isaacks, said through an employee Monday that she does not discuss family matters with the media. Mr. White could not be reached.
Adam Isaacks turned himself over to Denton police and was booked into the city’s jail late Sunday. A municipal judge set his bond at $500. He was transferred to Denton County jail on Monday.
Police were called to the Isaacks’ block by men who were loading shingles into a truck next door. One of the men said after the second shot, a plastic shot cup from a shotgun shell landed at his feet.
“He stated he heard laughing and a door closing from the backyard,” the affidavit says.
The incident occurred one week before the March primary elections, in which Bruce Isaacks was defeated in the GOP primary by former employee Paul Johnson. The arrest warrant was signed March 10, three days after the election. But police said Adam Isaacks received no special treatment and he was not arrested immediately because they wanted to build a stronger case.
“It had nothing to do with Isaacks,” said Sgt. Dave Sponhour, a police spokesman. “We’ve dealt with him before on things.”
Adam Isaacks was arrested in February 2005 after he was accused of shooting three girls with a BB gun outside a Carrollton middle school. Bruce Isaacks recused himself and his office from that case, which has made little progress through the court system. A visiting judge appointed former Grayson County prosecutor Bob Jarvis to the case.
Mr. Jarvis on Monday said he’s been tied up with a client’s case, but will be ready to move on the matter after next week.
“Now it’s time,” he said.
It was unclear Monday whether Bruce Isaacks will also recuse himself and his office of the latest charge. Discharging a firearm in a city of more than 100,000 residents is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.
