Suspect wears ‘spit hood’ due to actions

EDMOND — A belligerent suspect wore a “spit hood” after he purportedly spat on a female city jail employee, an incident report stated.

During the afternoon of Dec. 4, Edmond Police Officer Mason Long was dispatched to a call about a reported reckless driver traveling west on Danforth from Post Road, Long stated in the report.

Edmond Police Officer Brad Griffin located the vehicle, which had no tire on the rear passenger side, and it was driving with the rim only on the asphalt on Douglas, Long stated. Griffin reported seeing the vehicle travel off the shoulder of the road and then cross the left of center, Long stated.

Griffin initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle pulled over near the 100 block of North Douglas, Long stated.

When a 27-year-old male, the lone occupant, was detained, Long stated he noticed the odor of alcohol and the male’s bloodshot, watery eyes, slurred speech and swaying while standing. Long stated he asked the male how much he had to drink.

Long stated he said, “Way too much.”

Long stated the male said he consumed a bottle of wine and had two pieces of foil that smelled of burnt marijuana; the male admitted to smoking marijuana earlier that day.

After conducting the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus and observing six out of six clues, Long stated, he arrested Adam Wesley Payne, 27, of Edmond, on complaints of DUI and possession of drug paraphernalia. The test is one of three field sobriety tests comprising the standardized field sobriety test battery, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Long stated he found a one fourth full bottle of wine in the suspect’s vehicle.

At the city jail, the suspect began yelling obscenities at staff, Long stated. When he refused to sit down on the bench in the jail, two staff members had to hold him down on the bench, Long stated.

Long stated while he was filling out an officer’s affidavit, the suspect spat in Jailer Jennifer Webster’s face. The suspect was taken to the ground to gain control of him so a spit hood could be put over his head, Long stated.

He was taken to a cell where he continued to be belligerent, punching the door and yelling obscenities, Long stated. When he attempted to have the suspect sign the paperwork stating he was refusing to take the state’s test, he would not sign it, Long stated.

Long stated the pieces of foil contained marijuana residue.

Payne also faces complaints of transporting an open container of an alcoholic beverage, resisting an officer, placing bodily fluid on a government official and traffic citations of driving left of center and driving a vehicle injurious to street pavement.

All are state level complaints.

Police spokeswoman Jenny Monroe said a spit hood is used when someone officers have arrested is threatening to or has already spat on an officer or one of our jailers. The person can see out of it and obviously breath while wearing it, Monroe said.

On Dec. 4, Payne was booked into the Oklahoma County jail and was being held on a total bond amount of $56,000, according to jail records.

On Monday, criminal probable cause paperwork in the matter was filed in Oklahoma County District Court, according to online court records. No attorney information was listed.
