Former council candidate charged with hitting his wife


Former San Marcos City Council candidate Shaune C. Maycock was arrested this weekend and charged with hitting his wife during two separate arguments on Friday and Saturday.



The couple got into an altercation over daycare costs on Friday at their home in the Waterleaf subdivision in eastern Kyle, Maycock’s wife told the Kyle police. After “warning” her that he was becoming angry, Maycock pinned her against the kitchen counter and began striking her with clenched fists in the chest and abdomen, the wife told police.

The next evening, on Saturday, Maycock became angry when she rebuffed a sexual advance and threw a baby bottle, striking her in the throat, she said. The former council contender threw her on the bed and sat on her as he yelled and punched the mattress, she said. During the alleged tirade, Maycock hit his wife in the arm, causing a dark purple bruise about the size of a nickel, she said.

When Maycock left later that evening to go to Cabela’s, the wife fled the home with their 14-month-old daughter. The next afternoon, she went to the Kyle Police Department and filed a complaint.

Kyle police officer Daniel Preston interviewed Maycock at San Marcos Police Department headquarters the next day. He acknowledged the arguments but said he did not hit or otherwise harm her, Preston wrote in an affidavit used to secure an arrest warrant. During the Saturday argument in the bedroom, he said, they were standing on separate sides of the bed and he never touched her.

Maycock was booked at the Hays County jail on Sunday and released on Monday, jail records state. He is charged with Class A misdemeanor assault causing bodily injury (family violence).

Shaune Maycock could not be reached late this afternoon at his airplane maintenance business and a home or cell phone number listing could not be found.

Maycock came in third with 460 votes (23.9 percent) during the November 2009 municipal election.

  1. He should take full responsibility for his actions and accept the consequences that will be dealt out.

  2. Shaune Maycock is a “loose cannon” who has been threatening people for years around here. He is a dangerous individual, who always threatens Marine training and guns, and I hope that this latest incident will be taken seriously.
