David Wayne Atchison, 51, of Wagoner is charged with two felonies and three misdemeanors after he allegedly attempted to elude Muskogee police officers on March 21, possessed a firearm while committing that felony, impersonated a police officer and resisted an officer while possessing a controlled, dangerous substance, according to documents filed with the case.

After officers tried to pull Atchison over for an alleged traffic violation, he reportedly refused to pull over and stop. Once officers were able to stop him, they discovered him to be in possession of a Smith and Wesson .9 millimeter pistol and a clear baggie with a crystal substance inside.

Atchison allegedly presented officers with a Wagoner County badge and a Veterans Affairs badge and claimed to be an officer with those agencies.

After officers handcuffed him, Atchison also allegedly attempted to run off.

He faces a sounding docket at 10 a.m. in Muskogee County District Court.
