PRYOR, OK — Three days after Christmas, Adair resident Samantha Floyd was arrested for assaulting her father.

Floyd, 27, was arrested and charged with two misdemeanor counts, domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor and resisting an officer.

Information filed in the case alleges the defendant assaulted her father in the presence of a two-year-old child, then resisted when Deputy Shayne Smith attempted to arrest her.

Floyd appeared in court Monday for Mayes County District Court arraignment. She asked Judge Rebecca Gore if, upon entering a plea of no contest today, she could later have the charges expunged. The judge told her that considering the ranger of punishment for the charges, she could not. Floyd then entered a plea of not guilty and the case was set on the jury sounding docket Feb. 21.

“The state understands both counts are misdemeanor charges, but considering the facts behind both counts,” Assistant District Attorney Marny Hill said, “well, we won't use her exact language because it's not appropriate in a court room, but she told the officer she hoped he died. For that reason the state requests bond be set at $75,000.”

“Can I say something? I'm the one that called the cops about the assault, I was being assaulted,” Floyd said, before being reminded of her right to obtain an attorney.

Bond was set at $50,000 and Floyd was ordered to have absolutely no contact with any of the individuals listed in the case including her father, his wife, or the minor child.
