A former Roland assistant police chief was arrested on several misdemeanor charges Monday evening in Muldrow.
Billy Cannon, 41, was booked into the Sequoyah County Detention Center in Sallisaw on misdemeanor charges of public intoxication, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing a police officer.
Muldrow Police Chief George Lawson said Cannon was seen by a sheriff’s deputy on Wilson Rock Road when Cannon alleged passed the deputy on a motorcycle and was seen to be driving recklessly. The deputy contacted Muldrow police, who found Cannon in the parking lot at a Muldrow pawn shop.
“By this time he was off the bike and walking around,” Lawson said. Lawson said the officers stopped to talk to Cannon, and were walking away at one point when Cannon got “vocal” and agitated.
The officers then began another conversation with Cannon and the confrontation ended when they had to wrestle with Cannon to place him under arrest.
Cannon was released on a $3,500 bond early Tuesday.
