A Muldrow man received a $5,000 bond after being arrested and charged with a felony count of feloniously carrying a firearm.
Dominique Perkins, 39, was charged Sept. 27 in Sequoyah County District Court and could face imprisonment for one to 10 years if convicted.
Sequoyah County Sheriff‚s deputy Allen Ramey reported on Sept. 23 at around 8 p.m. he was dispatched to Cherokee Boulevard in Roland in reference to a disturbance that reportedly took place on 4810 Road and U.S. Highway 64.
The reporting party told Ramey they were driving south on 4810 Rd. when a gold Nissan traveling north flashed their high beams at the reporting party. The reporting party claimed as they passed the vehicle the occupants were yelling and honking their horn. The reporting party said when they stopped, the Nissan also stopped and backed up. The reporting party claimed they were just trying to tell the driver their bright lights were on.
According to the probable cause affidavit in the case, the man who got out of the Nissan was later identified as Perkins. When Perkins got out of the vehicle, he allegedly had a shotgun in his right hand, which was reportedly pointed at the ground. The reporting party said Perkins walked to the back of the Nissan, facing the reporting party who was still in the driver‚s seat, allegedly pointed the shotgun at the reporting party, and then asked the reporting party if they had a problem.
The reporting party called police and said when they turned around to follow the Nissan, it was traveling west on Hwy. 64 toward Roland. Roland Police officer Jason Stone stopped the Nissan and detained Perkins.
Police arrested Perkins and reported finding a loaded Savage Arms 12 gauge pump-action shotgun in the front passenger seat. Perkins is now scheduled for an Oct. 5 arraignment before Associate District Judge Kyle Waters, according to court records.
