A 34-year-old Muldrow man was charged Sept. 21 in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw, with falsely personating another, possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS), and bringing contraband into the jail, all felonies, and a misdemeanor charge of possession of CDS.
Cory Honeycutt was arrested Sept. 17 in Sallisaw, during a traffic stop, and allegedly gave the police officer an incorrect name, according to the police report. The officer knew Honeycutt, and found there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
The transporting officer reported finding pieces of a yellow pill, believed to be Xanax, in the seat of his vehicle when he removed Honeycutt at the Sallisaw Police Department. After Honeycutt was taken into a dressing area to be outfitted in jail garb, officers outside heard yelling from the room.
The report indicates other officers raced into the room and found the officer on the floor with Honeycutt, yelling at him to "spit it out."
The reporting officer continues, "I then applied pressure to Honeycutt's jaw while telling him to spit it out. Honeycutt refused to comply. I then placed Honeycutt in a neck restraint which caused him to spit out multiple baggies. Two of the baggies contained approximately 1.5 grams of crystalline substance that subsequently field tested positive for...methamphetamine."
Those were sent to a lab for analysis.
The report continues, "Honeycutt stated that, 'That's not mine, y'all shoved it in my mouth while I was asleep.' While Honeycutt took off his underwear two more empty baggies fell out."
Honeycutt's case is set for Judge Kyle Waters disposition docket on Oct. 21.
