Oklahoma City shoplifter accused of assaulting security officer with car arrested www.privateofficer.com
Oklahoma City OK March 21 2012 A woman accused of running over the leg of a security guard while fleeing a Crest Foods store told police the guard grabbed her by the neck, court documents show.
Shakietha Y. Thompson, 32, of Oklahoma City, was arrested March 13 on suspicion of assault with a dangerous weapon and leaving the scene of an injury accident after the car she was driving was found in a parking lot at 7201 NW 122, a probable cause affidavit shows.
According to the affidavit, Thompson walked up to a police officer photographing the car and said “it was me.” She said the guard grabbed her by the neck and “she was scared, so she bit him.”
The damage to the car was consistent with injuries suffered by Justin Blackwell, 27, the guard who was trying to stop a woman from shoplifting from the Crest Foods store at Hefner Road and Rockwell Avenue on March 12.
Blackwell told police a woman concealed cold medicine in her pocket and left the store without paying for it. He identified himself as a security officer and told the woman to stop. When she refused, he grabbed her and was bitten on the arm, police said.
Blackwell said he tried to take the woman’s keys, and was standing inside the open driver’s door when the woman got into the car and backed up. Blackwell was struck by the open door and knocked to the ground, police said, and had abrasions on his lower legs and a bite mark on his left forearm when police arrived.
Witnesses provided a tag number and a vehicle description.
OKLAHOMA CITY Okla Feb 28 2012 – A 53-year-old man, who claimed to have documents for GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, was arrested and subdued with a stun gun after trying to break through a security checkpoint at Will Rogers World Airport, according to police.
James Jay Heidebrecht, of Oklahoma City, was arrested on Feb. 20 on complaints of trespassing, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, according to a police report.
Police said they were investigating a disturbance to the west security checkpoint. Heidebrecht told police he was waiting on a flight and then tried to walk through the exit lane to a secure area of the airport, the report stated.
Investigators said Heidebrecht was asked to leave the airport, but he ignored the order and started yelling at a police sergeant.
Heidebrecht became combatant and an officer deployed his Taser, the police report said.
Police said the Oklahoma City man told them he was a member of the Central Intelligence Agency and had documents to give to Gingrich. He also stated that the only reason he went to the airport was to meet Gingrich.
Putnam County OK Feb 26 2012 FBI agents arrested a substitute teacher Friday at a Putnam City School District middle school on complaints related to a 2010 bank robbery.
Quincy Benton, 40, of Oklahoma City, was arrested about 10 a.m. at Mayfield Middle School, 1600 N Purdue, on a bank robbery complaint, FBI Special Agent Clayton Simmonds said.
Simmonds said Benton was involved in the Dec. 14, 2010, robbery of a Bank of the West branch at 5401 NW 23, in Oklahoma City. Two bank employees were tied up and left in the bank’s vault.
Steve Lindley, a spokesman for the Putnam City School District, said Benton began substitute teaching at the school this school year and had worked 74 days. He was subjected to the district’s regular background checks.
A check of state court records does not show any previous arrests involving Benton.
“The FBI was very quick and very discreet,” Lindley said. “The principal felt like only a handful of students would have seen anything. There were a lot of rumors and innuendo going around.”
Lindley said the school’s principal put an automated phone call out to parents Friday afternoon to let them know about the situation.
Oklahoma City OK May 17 2011
Police accuse a Westmoore High School substitute teacher of sending inappropriate text messages to a 17-year-old student.
Police arrested Michael J. Fruitt, 53, of Oklahoma City, on Friday on a complaint of violating the computer crimes act, according to a police report released Monday. He remains in the Oklahoma County jail, and bail has not been set. He has not been charged.
The school principal called police Friday to alert them to text messages on a student’s phone, an officer wrote in the report. The messages told the student he wanted to “rip off your (her) shorts” and “rub your (her) body”
and that she was “so hot” and “very sexy.”
The student told police Fruitt gave her a note with his phone number earlier in the year and asked her to text
him, and the student obliged, according to the report. The student gave Fruitt her new phone number later in the school year when she got a new phone.
A second student also told police she got text messages from Fruitt, the officer
wrote. The messages were not overtly sexual, but he called her pet names such as “sweetie” and “honey.”
Fruitt does not have a significant criminal history listed in state court records.
