Friday, October 30, 2020, Atoka Police Officer Cody Poe was dispatched to a residence on North Mississippi Avenue due to a male refusing to leave the home.
Officer Poe made contact with the home owner, Kimberly Sailor. She informed the officer there was a man in the upstairs area of her home, and she wanted him removed.
Sailor showed Officer Poe to the staircase, but did not know where the man was because she had not gone upstairs.
Officer Poe was able to locate the man in an upstairs bedroom due to the sound of screaming incoherently.
Identified as Aaron James Newton, 44, from Atoka, he would not respond too the officer’s command to sit up on the bed.
Newton continued to scream incoherently and refuse commands as Officer Poe drew his taser.
The taser was arched, but not fired; Newton jumped off the bed and laid on the floor to be put in handcuffs.
Newton admitted, to the officer, that he had used “meth” approximately “30 hours” before the incident.
He was transported to the Atoka County Jail and booked for public intoxication.
