$750,000 bond for car-towing fugitive

Suspect allegedly assaulted officer in county jail

EDMOND — A metro man who allegedly met an Edmond woman, harassed her and had her car towed is now behind bars on $750,000 bond, court records show.

On Tuesday, members of the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office warrant team with assistance from the U.S. Marshal’s Service arrested Victor Andrew Ramsey Jr., 21, of Midwest City, in the 2800 block of S. Midwest Blvd. at a restaurant where he was working as a delivery driver, OCSO spokesman Mark Myers said.

Myers said Ramsey was wanted on three warrants related to multiple complaints: False impersonation, making threatening phone calls, robbery with a firearm, unauthorized use of a computer, unauthorized use of a vehicle, concealing stolen property, larceny from a house and assault and battery on a police officer.

He was wanted in Edmond, Oklahoma City and Midwest City.

In the Edmond case, the victim was in a relationship with the defendant for about two weeks prior to the incident, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed by Edmond Police Detective Jason Stearns in Oklahoma County District Court.

The defendant became upset with her because she was going out with other people, and he began to allegedly send her threatening text messages in hopes that she would respond to him, the affidavit stated.

The defendant later filled out a Department of Public Safety tow request and authorization form, which he allegedly signed “James Lee,” to have the victim’s car towed from her Edmond home, the affidavit stated. He told the tow truck driver he was the owner of the property and he didn’t know who owned the car, the affidavit stated.

He then texted the victim, advising her that he just had her car impounded and the name of the company that impounded it, the affidavit stated. He then sent more text messages allegedly threatening her if she called the cops, the affidavit stated.

After the victim came to the Edmond Police Department station about the harassing text messages, Police Officer Ben Daves contacted the defendant and told him to not have any further contact with the victim, the affidavit stated.

He continued to send threatening text messages and images after his conversation with Daves, the affidavit stated.

On Oct. 9, felony falsely impersonating another and making obscene, threatening or harassing telephonic or other electronic communication charges in the Edmond case, a felony assault and battery upon a police officer charge stemming from an incident that involved the OCSO and robbery and other charges stemming from an Oklahoma City incident were filed in Oklahoma County District Court. No future court dates are listed on the Oklahoma State Courts Network online database.

Defense counsel information was not yet available. The defendant had not yet entered a plea in court.

On Nov. 19, 2010, the alleged robbery, which occurred in Oklahoma City, involved a stolen car, a high-speed chase, crash and a foot pursuit that ended at Deaconess Hospital, police said. After taking him into custody, officers found $1,400 in his front pocket in the same denominations allegedly taken from the victim, police said. The gun used in the alleged robbery was later found hidden under a truck in the parking lot, and the victim’s phone number was found written on a piece of paper inside the bag containing the gun, police said.

The victim had met the defendant by responding to a vehicle for sale ad on Craigslist, police said.

In January 2011, the defendant was incarcerated in the Oklahoma County jail when he allegedly refused to cooperate with detention officers in returning a tray, grabbed an officer by his uniform and refused to let him go stating, “We gonna scrap,” according to court records. Ramsey was taken to the ground and jumped up, allegedly striking the officer with knee strikes and punches to his groin area, police said. | 341-2121, ext. 108

  • A Q&A on ‘Obamacare’ Court Rulings

    On Tuesday, two federal appeals courts issued conflicting rulings on the legality of tax subsidies being provided to people who bought “Obamacare” health insurance policies in Oklahoma and 35 other states.
    Here’s a look at the rulings’ potential impact in Oklahoma.

    Q: I’m confused. What did the courts rule today?
    A: A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals circuit in Washington, D.C., decided that the government can’t provide tax subsidies for Affordable Care Act plans purchased in 36 states where the federal government is operating the health insurance exchange. Oklahoma is one of the 36 states. A few hours later, the U.S. Court of Appeals circuit in Richmond, Va., issued a conflicting ruling that upheld the legality of the health-care law’s tax subsidies.
