A disturbance at the Colonial Motel brought Atoka Police Officer Tyson Dillishaw to investigate on Saturday, June 27, 2020.
The owner of the Colonial Motel, Dbsai Ajakkumar, advised the officer of a woman in room five being loud and disturbing the residence of the motel.
Ajaykumar requested the suspect, Hazel Renee Smith, 45, of Atoka, be made to leave and be trespassed from the property.
Officer Dillishaw made contact with Smith who stated the room was in her name and she was allowed to be there by the owner. Ajaykumar informed the officer that Smith had no reservation in her name.
Smith was told three times to leave the property. She answered with “No, I will not, sir.” Officer Dillishaw advised Smith that if she did not leave the premises she would be arrested. “I will not go to jail.” Smith stated.
Atoka Police Officer Jedediah Griffith arrived on scene to assist as Smith actively resisted the officers. Once inside the patrol unit, Smith claimed her ankle was broken and needed EMS.
The Atoka County EMS arrived on scene to check her ankle. Smith was medically cleared to go to jail. She was booked at the Atoka County Jail for disobeying a lawful order and resisting arrest.
