Four local men are charged with obstructing an officer and threatening to perform an act of violence.
Reggy Mouse, Willie Jumper, Jeremy Dunham and Jesse Hogshooter are each charged with a misdemeanor offense.
Court records indicate that on Aug. 3, the suspects were involved in an altercation with Mayes County Sheriff's Deputy Alan Davis.
“They threatened to do harm to Davis by circling him, backing him into a corner, shutting the door to prevent him from leaving and yelling threats at him,” according to court records.
Hogshooter, Vinita, has a prior record that includes a felony count of knowingly concealing stolen property and five misdemeanor counts of public intoxication. Jumper, Spavinaw, has two prior public intoxication charges.
Assistant District Attorney Marny Hill said her office is working to get the second count on each defendant amended to a felony.
“This is a case of several co-defendants surrounding an officer in his home and preventing him from leaving,” said Hill.
Gore set bond at $25,000 for each individual except Hogshooter. When asked if she would like to stipulate any special conditions of bond, Hill requested an ankle monitor. Gore denied her request. Jumper initially entered a plea of guilty to both counts. When asked if he understood that meant he could begin serving time immediately, Jumper changed his plea to not guilty.
Hogshooter, having prior felony convictions. had his bond set at $40,000. Gore told Hogshooter he has a felony count for failing to appear for sentencing and a misdemeanor charge for failure to pay fines and costs as required. Bond in these cases was set at $100,000 and $38,820, respectively.
Each of the cases was set on the jury sounding docket Dec. 6.
