Tony Baucom, the father of the nine-year-old who was injured in a bullying incident at Pershing Elementary School, was arrested on Nov. 22 after he allegedly brandished a firearm at Carmart on Shawnee and threatened to “put eight rounds” in Brian Adams.
Baucom was also allegedly responsible for a lockdown at Pershing Elementary School on the same day after saying “send all the police, see what happens” over the phone when being informed that a warrant (since recalled) had been issued for his wife over the previous incident at Pershing.
After his arrest, Baucom is accused of attacking three jailers at the Muskogee County Jail, knocking one, Benjamin Ford, out and giving him a concussion. During the same incident, he is accused of grabbing Media Roe by the hair and slamming her head into a filing cabinet and striking Zachary Junhi.
He was eventually subdued and jailed.
Baucom has been charged with four felonies, assault and battery with a deadly weapon after the Carport incident, aggravated assault and battery for the concussion of Benjamin Ford, and two counts of assault and battery on a police officer for the other two detention officers.
He was previously convicted of eluding a police officer and six counts of running a road block in 2007 and sentenced to five years suspended, and placing bodily fluid on a government employee and sentenced to two years suspended.
He has been released on a total of $5,000 bond.
