Plans to watch an Oklahoma City Thunder game on television turned into a harrowing two-hour nightmare involving meth, porn and death threats, according to an incident report.
During the evening of April 24, Edmond Police Officer Jeff Meadows responded to a call in the 600 block of Scott Drive in reference to a possible domestic dispute, according to the report filed by Meadows. En route, dispatch told him the male suspect was believed to be armed with a gun, Meadows stated.
When he arrived, the officer was flagged down by a victim who said the suspect ran away from the home toward Elmwood Drive, Meadows stated. The victim said the male involved had become angry earlier in the evening at her and her friend, the report stated.
He allegedly went to his bedroom, retrieved a handgun and had been holding the women there against their will, Meadows stated.
The victim said the suspect would allegedly put the gun to their heads and threaten to kill them for no apparent reason, Meadows stated. At one point, the suspect allegedly forced one of the victims to start a pornography DVD and while holding the gun on both women told them to act out a pornography scene for him, the report stated.
Both victims said the suspect unzipped his pants while ordering them to engage in sexual acts with each other, Meadows stated.
When the victims refused the suspect ordered one of them to the back bedroom, leaving the other victim in the living room, Meadows stated. She saw her opportunity to escape and fled out the front door to a neighbor’s house where she called police, the officer stated.
Meanwhile, the suspect allegedly put the other victim on her knees in the living room, placed the gun barrel to her head and told her she had better go find the other female; she believed she was going to be shot right then, Meadows stated.
A victim said the suspect still had the gun when he fled after finding out police had been called, Meadows stated. Fearing the suspect would return and kill them she asked Meadows to stay with them, the officer stated.
Numerous Edmond officers searched the area and set up a perimeter around the neighborhood, Meadows stated.
About an hour later, he looked up the street to the east of Scott Drive and saw a male matching the suspect’s description run south across the street in front of another squad car, Meadows stated.
An officer down the street also saw the male who was captured in the front yard of a home along Scott Drive, Meadows stated. Two Oklahoma County deputies had the suspect at gunpoint, according to supplemental reporting.
He did not have the gun on him and he refused to tell officers what he did with it, Meadows stated. Meadows said he needed to know where the gun was since he was seen running away from Edmond Memorial High School property, the report stated.
On the night of the incident, both victims were adamant that the suspect fled from the house with a semi-automatic pistol and not a revolver, Meadows stated. He stated officers believed the suspect had ditched it somewhere in the neighborhood.
The suspect said his gun was safe and he told the officer he could talk to his lawyer, Meadows stated.
On Wednesday, a few days after a gun matching the description of the weapon allegedly used during the incident was recovered, Meadows returned to the scene, according to a supplemental report filed by the officer.
A victim agreed to the search of the home and the officer was handed a Ruger gun box that matched the brand of pistol recovered by Officer Jeff Smith in the front yard of a home on Pine Oak Drive, Meadows stated. Both victims said the suspect was running in the same general direction, the officer stated.
One of the victims said the suspect had a pipe in his hand that was loaded with meth, Meadows stated. He allegedly lit it and began smoking in front of her. She thinks her refusal to share his drugs started the evening off wrong, the officer stated.
Meadows stated after interviewing the victims he arrested Michael Ray Wigley, 44, of Edmond, on complaints of assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.
An examination of the suspect’s criminal history showed numerous entries on his criminal record, Meadows stated. He had a felony burglary conviction in Logan County and another felony conviction for robbery in Oklahoma County.
Wigley is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a $119,000 bond, according to jail records. Attorney information was not available in an online court database.
On April 26, criminal probable cause paperwork against Wigley had been filed in Oklahoma County District Court. No future court dates had been posted in the online court database.
