Tai’Brion Maurice Walker, 20, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with two felony counts of assault and battery on a police officer, a felony count of possession of a firearm after previous juvenile adjudication, a felony count of possession fo controlled drug with intent to distribute, a felony count of acquiring proceeds from drug activity, a misdemeanor of driving with a suspended license, a misdemeanor of resisting an officer and a misdemeanor of failure to pay taxes due to the state.
The charges stem from an incident on Saturday, where an officer observed Walker park his car in a driveway and get out of it, walking up to a house, according to an affidavit filed with the case. The officer stated he confronted Walker “to investigate what appeared to be aimless prowling” at the house. The officer then states that he commanded Walker to approach the front of the officer’s car, but Walker instead turned and tried to walk away. During the arrest, the officer states Walker resisted “me and other officers for several minutes, attempting to control him, take him down and handcuff him, assault and battery on a police officer by kicking Sergeant Forbes and dragging me along the ground, causing injury.”
After Walker was arrested, officers say they found nine grams of marijuana (a little more than a quarter ounce), “larger than typical bags of personal use.” Police also found empty plastic bags and a digital scale, plus $458 in cash, which they stated was evidence Walker was intending to distribute the quarter ounce of marijuana.
Police also stated he was possessing a pistol after former juvenile adjudication, but said there was no evidence of any conviction in that former case.
