Marsha Rovai

Remember the woman who was shoved at the recent Nick Lampson press conference in Sugar Land, held shortly after Tom DeLay announced his future resignation from Congress? She's filed a complaint in connection with the incident.

The probe has taken an unusual twist, because the man who has been named in the alleged assault is Ken Dexter, the foreman of the Fort Bend County grand jury.

Dexter, 55, who ran for county tax assessor-collector in 2004 and lost, was out of town and could not be reached for comment Friday.

Marsha Rovai, the woman who said she was assaulted, filed a complaint last week with police, saying she was pushed and that someone pulled her hat down and knocked off her glasses.

Police said Rovai filed a complaint but said no one was named as an assailant, said Sugar Land spokesman Doug Adolph.

What this story doesn't say is that it apparently took Rovai two trips to the Sugar Land PD to get the complaint filed. Fort Bend Now has the story from her first try, while the Muse, Juanita and Juanita again have some background. This one ought to be fun to sort out.
