Jason Williams, 36, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with felony assault and battery on a police officer, misdemeanor obstructing officer, disturbing the peace and trespassing after being forbidden, according to documents just filed at the courthouse.

Williams, according to a police affidavit filed with the case, “threatened and harassed employees of Walmart before our arrival, making them retreat into an office.”

In addition, Williams is alleged to have refused to identify himself in response to officer commands, refusing to obey commands after being informed he was under arrest and striking Officer Bryan Wilkins in the chest will resisting arrest. Police pepper sprayed him in a video that has now gone viral, leading to numerous threats from across the country to the police, the police station, Walmart and for reporting the incident.

Williams, who claims to be an Army veteran disabled during deployment in Afghanistan, has had those claims come into question, too. An Army acquaintance says Williams was never deployed to any combat zone and was “thrown out” of the military and stripped of any military status to the point that he can’t legally call himself a veteran.

The acquaintance, who asked that his name be removed due to numerous threats he received from his name appearing in this story, said Williams wasn’t injured in the Army and that “he was at my house last year, working on his RV in my garage, climbing a ladder, etc., and going on long hikes on my land.” He also alleged that Williams is “always looking for a way to sue someone ... this guy is bad news.”

The case filed today has 12 witnesses endorsed for the state of Oklahoma.
