PRYOR, OK — Chouteau Police Officer Thomas Fisher was dispatched to Sonic Drive-In,  around 9:15 p.m., Monday.

Seth Osborne, 20, was placed under arrest and taken to Locust Grove Jail shortly thereafter.

“Osborne passed out in his car at Sonic,” said Fisher. “It seems he smoked three grams of K2 before ordering his food.”

Fisher said the carhop arrived with his food to find Osborne unconscious in his vehicle. That's when she called the police.

“I woke Osborne up and asked him to step out of the vehicle. When he exited the vehicle, the bag of K2 and a lighter fell out of his lap and onto the ground,” said Fisher. “All the K2 was gone, but there was burnt residue inside two drill sockets he used to smoke it with.”

Fisher describes Osborne as being lethargic and disoriented. Osborne was experiencing body tremors, Fisher reported.

“It’s a relief he was apprehended in a parked vehicle. He would have been a serious threat to other motorists if he had gotten back onto the road. He also said this was his first time to ever smoke K2,” said Fisher.

Osborne has one prior offense on his criminal record in Mayes County. In 2012, he was charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence while under age 21 and leaving the scene of an accident involving property damage.

K2 is synthetic marijuana. It is often packaged as potpourri and sold at convenience stores. District Attorney Janice Steidley said that possession of synthetic marijuana is a Schedule 1 felony and can carry up to 10 years in the Department of Corrections for the first offense.

One of the largest synthetic marijuana busts occurred at Gates Convenient Store in Pryor. John, Nancy and Robert Gates were charged with possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute. They will appear in court for a preliminary hearing April 14.
