Oklahoma man arrested after allegedly tresspassing at the Oklahoma City Zoo
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man was taken into custody after he allegedly trespassing at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
On June 21, officers were called to the zoo after security guards say the man walked in through an open gate.
The arrest affidavit says police spotted 51-year-old Timothy Scott walking away from the zoo.
According to the affidavit, Scott told officers that he was “checking on the animals” because he believed “someone is hurting them.”
As an officer was trying to pat Scott for weapons, authorities say he got into a fighting stance, saying, “It’s on now.”
When other officers arrived, Scott sat down but would not put his hands behind his back.
“I am not listening to your orders. You cannot touch me,” Scott reportedly told them.
Officers deployed a burst of pepper spray onto Scott’s forehead before they were able to take him in to custody.
However, they say he would not give them any of his information, saying that his name was “Bobby Barry, Jr.”
Scott was arrested on charges of trespassing, resisting arrest and obstruction.
