Jason Keith Morris Jason Keith Morris, 41, of Muskogee is charged with felony terrorism hoax in Muskogee County District Court after an event on April 25 where police were trying to arrest him in an alleged physical altercation.

Morris is accused of being involved in the altercation with three other men in the Keetoowah Trails apartment complex parking lot that night. When police were attempting to arrest him, they say he claimed to have COVID-19 and then proceeded to cough at the officers on scene.

In addition to the felony, he is charged with misdemeanor resisting an officer.

The district attorney added in the filing that Morris has been previously convicted of numerous felonies: first-degree burglary (for which he received a 15-year sentence in 2006), feloniously pointing a weapon, for which he received 10 years; kidnapping, for which he received 10 years; and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, for which he received 10 years.
