Lawbreaking motorists are not tolerated by the Copperfield Coalition. The watchdog group is committed to public safety and believes speeding and running through stop signs in its northwest Harris County community must end. As president of the coalition, Anthony Cecala has been on the front lines of those safety efforts. Lately, however, some believe Cecala may have approached that crime-fighting zeal with too much gusto.
Cecala allegedly chased 24-year-old Brandon Alsobrooks in his truck on March 21 after he saw Alsobrooks run a stop sign. He is also accused of trying to strike Alsobrooks’ father with his truck. Cecala, 52, was later charged with aggravated assault. “How does he think it’s not OK for a kid to roll through a stop sign, but it’s OK for him to chase him down at 90 miles per hour in a residential neighborhood?” said Kevin Green, 46, a friend of the victim’s family, who witnessed the incident in front of his home. Cecala’s exact speed through the subdivision is unknown.
