Roland man fails to appear in court



Friday, June 25, 2021 - A bench warrant for failure to appear in court was issued June 18 for a Roland man accused of driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, according to court records.


Delbert Wayne Armington, 32, failed to attend a June 9 hearing in Sequoyah County District Court to answer to the DUI charge, which is punishable by a fine of up to $2,500 and up to five years in prison or a minimum of 28 days of treatment followed by 30 days of aftercare at the defendant's expense.


Armington's bond was originally set at $3,000, but after his failure to appear in court, that amount was doubled to $6,000.


On May 24, a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol states, an OHP trooper clocked the vehicle Armington was driving at 81 mph in a posted 60-mph zone, prompting the trooper to initiate a traffic stop.


While speaking with Armington, the trooper noted the man's red, watery eyes and the odor of an alcoholic beverage. Armington failed several field-sobriety tests, according to the trooper's report

.

In 2007, Armington was convicted in Sebastian County, Ark., of possession of cocaine with intent to deliver.
