Man Accused of Spitting on Officers

A Sallisaw man, who allegedly resisted arrest, was charged Sept. 17 in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw with two counts of assault and battery on a police officer and three counts of placing body fluid on a government employee, all felonies, and resisting an officer and public intoxication, both misdemeanors.

Robert Kyle Williams, 33, was arrested on Argyle in Sallisaw on Sept. 7 for public intoxication. But, according to the police report, Williams began resisting being placed in the police cruiser and accusing an officer of injecting him with medication. After being transported to the Sallisaw Police Station, Williams was "combative" and was screaming at officers.

According to the report, in the changing room where Williams was to be dressed in jail garb, he struck the officer in the chest with his forearm, was yelling obscenities, was actively fighting with officers, and allegedly tried to bite one officer. During these altercations, officers reported tasing Williams three times to get him under control.

Williams allegedly spit on one officer at the police department and spit on another when he was transferred later to the county jail.

Sheriff Ron Lockhart asked that Williams be medically cleared due to his intoxication. He was then transferred to Sequoyah Memorial Hospital in Sallisaw, allegedly "still cursing and making threats." The medical staff reported Williams had methamphetamines and ecstasy in his system.

After his medical exam, Williams was transported without incident back to the county jail. He was later freed on a $28,500 bond.
