A Texarkana man has pleaded guilty to assault with a deadly weapon.  62 year-old Drew Danielson was a Tyler airport employee in May 2020 when he was arrested after hitting a co-worker with a city vehicle.  Witnesses said Danielson had a history of playing around at work and was driving his work truck at an unsafe speed when he hit a co-worker in the arm causing significant pain and nerve damage, losing feeling in his fingers.  The Smith county district attorney says sentencing will take place at a later date as restitution is determined.
