OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man is facing several charges after allegedly struggling with police during an investigation.
Last week, officers received a tip about drugs being sold from a home along N.E. 43rd St.
As several people began fleeing the scene, they saw 38-year-old Steven Hutson Jr.
Police began patting him down for a search and say Hutson started fidgeting with the handcuffs.
According to the arrest affidavit, Hutson was holding onto something in his right hand and would not hand it over to officers.
After allegedly struggling with police and resisting arrest, authorities say they were forced to deploy a taser.
At that point, Hutson fell to the ground but he “became active again and quickly tried to turn over.”
Officers deployed a second taser but still struggled to grab the bag that was in his hand.
When they finally were able to retrieve it, the arrest affidavit claims they realized it was a small bag of cocaine.
Hutson was put in the back of the patrol car with arm and leg restraints.
According to the police report, he started yelling, “I’m a straight killa, look me up. I’ve done killed three or four m************. I’m a killa, you’ll see, you’ll pay, watch.”
While being taken to the hospital, officers were forced to stop because they say Hutson was attempting to kick out the back window.
At that point, officials say they maced him.
Hutson is being charged with drug trafficking, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction, possession of drug proceeds, threatening acts of violence and resisting arrest.
