COTULLA, Texas – A Hill Country contractor awaiting trial in a felony theft case has been charged with family violence for the second time in seven months, according to an incident report obtained by the KSAT 12 Defenders.

Nickles Wolfe, 31, was charged with assault causing bodily injury to a family member and violation of a protective order following a Jan. 10 incident outside the La Salle County Sheriff’s Office.

A source familiar with the case said Wolfe assaulted his wife during a child exchange in the sheriff’s office parking lot.

La Salle County Sheriff’s officials have released limited details about the arrest but stated Wolfe used his hands, feet and teeth as weapons during the incident.

Wolfe had been on bond since June, after his arrest in Jim Wells County on a felony family strangulation charge.

In that case, sheriff’s department investigators arrested Wolfe days after they were called to a home in Orange Grove for a disturbance.

Wolfe is also out on bond in Gillespie County, according to court records, where he is awaiting trial for multiple felony charges related to his now-shuttered construction company.

Multiple former clients of Wolfe told the Defenders in 2019 he took payments for work and then abandoned the projects before they were completed.
