OKLAHOMA CITY - Just hours after an Oklahoma City attorney bonded out for an Intimidation of a State's Witness charge, she was arrested again on separate federal charges, according to her lawyer.

Oklahoma City attorney Keegan Harroz was arrested and charged with intimidation of a witness on September 13.

On September 27, Harroz went before a judge on the intimidation charge. Harroz was able to bond out of jail but required to wear an ankle monitor.

Now, her attorney Jarrod Stevenson says just hours after being released from custody, federal agents arrested her at her home on a misdemeanor ammunition complaint.  'It`s definitely interesting.  I don`t know why they wouldn't have filed it before she bonded and had a hold on her," Stevenson told News 4.  "We know she didn`t have a hold on her, or Okmulgee wouldn`t have released her at that time."

According to the arrest warrant, she was arrested on complaints of Prohibited Person in Possession of Ammunition and Selling or Otherwise Disposing of a Firearm to a Prohibited Person.  "The only way she would be a potentially prohibited person would be the existence of a protective order filed here in Oklahoma County," Stevenson said.

Stevenson told News 4 there are competing protective orders between Harroz and her former law partner David Bedford.  In most cases the defendant in an emergency protective order is restricted from possessing firearms, but in this specific case, a judge made sure to note that Harroz wasn't prohibited of being in possession of weapons.  "Under state law she can be in possession, a state judge allowed her to be in possession of a firearm," Stevenson said.  "There`s not going to be a state charge for her being a prohibited person."

She remains in federal custody & will make an initial appearance before a judge at the beginning of the week.
