Friday, October 7, 2022 - Law enforcement officers in Sequoyah County arrested a Muldrow man Sept. 25 after he reportedly flagged down a motorist then threatened him with a shotgun.
Dominique Perkins, 39, was charged with feloniously pointing a firearm, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
According to a probable cause affidavit, on Sept. 23, a Sequoyah County sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to 101 Cherokee Blvd. in Roland in reference to a disturbance that took place at 4810 Road and Highway 64.
When the deputy arrived at the scene, he met with the reporting party, Thomas Williams, who stated that he was driving south on 4810 Road when a gold Nissan traveling north began flashing its high beams at him. Williams said he flashed his lights back and as the Nissan passed him, the occupants of the gold car were yelling and honking the car’s horn. Williams stated that when he stopped his vehicle, the Nissan also stopped and backed up toward him.
Williams said he was trying to tell the driver of the Nissan that his bright lights were not on. Then, he said, a Black male later identified as Perkins got out of the car’s passenger’s side with a shotgun in his right hand, pointed at the ground.
Williams said the male then walked to the back of the Nissan, facing Williams, who was still in the driver’s seat of his vehicle.
Williams said Perkins pointed the shotgun at him and said, “Do we have a f****** problem?”
At that point, Williams said, he drove down the road, then turned around to follow the suspect. He said he followed the Nissan traveling west on Highway 64 toward Roland while on the phone with the Roland Police Department.
A short time later, a Roland police officer stopped the Nissan and detained Perkins, who was found in possession of a loaded shotgun in the front seat with him.
