Adcocks Enter Not Guilty Pleas

Naaman Adcock and his wife,Tabitha Adcock, both of rural Muldrow, entered not guilty pleas to a variety of gun and child abuse charges Wednesday in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw. Both their cases have been placed on Judge Larry Langley's disposition docket for 9 a.m. June 25. Naaman Adcock, 40, is charged with child abuse, feloniously pointing a firearm and reckless conduct with a firearm. Tabitha Adcock, 31, is charged with child endangerment, permitting abuse, and reckless conduct with a firearm. The court clerk's office reported the Adcocks have not yet obtained attorneys. The charges arose from a call placed to 911 in the early morning hours of May 27, after Tabitha's 12-year-old daughter ran to a neighbor's house and asked they call for help. In later interrogations, Tabitha said the couple were shooting tires in their yard, and nothing was amiss. But her two children told investigators that the couple became involved in an argument, and Naaman Adcock first grabbed Tabitha's 5-year-old son and threw him out of their mobile home, then grabbed him by the shirt and threatened to shoot the boy in the head. Tabitha told investigators, "The gun wasn't loaded." Tabitha Adcock told investigators later that she lied because she was afraid her husband would lose his job. According to the report, Naaman Adcock later told investigators that he became angry when his wife left, and shot holes in the mobile home's walls. Investigators reported finding bullet holes in several of the home's walls, in the bedroom and in the living room walls and ceiling. The report also notes that Naaman Adcock admitted to investigators that he had been drinking. Before leaving the home, sheriff's deputies confiscated nine guns belonging to Adcock, because he appeared to be drunk. Both Naaman and Tabitha Adcock were arrested the next day. He bonded out of the Sequoyah County Jail on a $24,000 bond and she bonded out on a $14,000 bond. The next day it was announced that Naaman Adcock, an officer with the Fort Smith Police Department, had resigned from his post.
