Friday, July 16, 2021 - A Muldrow man was arrested June 29 and charged with child endangerment by driving under the influence, court documents reveal.
Sammy Rogers, 31,faces up to four years in prison and/or a fine of $5,000 if he is convicted on that charge.
He was also charged with driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, a felony punishable by imprisonment for up to five years and a fine of up to $2,500 or a minimum of 28 days of treatment followed by 30 days of aftercare at the defendant's expense or treatment, imprisonment and a fine.
Rogers was also charged with carrying a firearm while under the influence, a misdemeanor.
He was released on $13,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. July 21.
On June 29, a Muldrow police officer stopped a white Ford pickup heading south on Highway 64B within town limits. She requested backup because the driver, Rogers, was intoxicated and he had two children with him inside the truck.
Rogers told officers he had “three or four Tall Boys today” and he failed a field-sobriety test. A preliminary breath test result was .178 BAC.
Back at the Muldrow Police Department, Rogers refused to take further tests and was eventually transported to the Sequoyah County Jail.
A search of Rogers' truck turned up a Glock model 45 s/n BLAX518 with a Streamlight TLR-1 light, loaded magazine with a round in the chamber.
