Monday, November 23, 2020, Atoka Police Officer Cody Poe, responded to an incident after Dispatch advised him of multiple calls in reference to a possible fight.
Arriving on scene at East B Street, Officer Poe noticed multiple people standing outside at two separate residences. The Officer knocked on the door to the home at 235 East B Street, and a male, identified as Jeffrey Edmond Marshall, 51, of Atoka, came to the door.
Marshall was using profanity. The Officer advised him to stop talking that way due to multiple people being outside.
Officer Poe asked him about the fight. Marshall first said that he did not know what he was talking about. The Officer told him that multiple people stated the fight happened in his yard and that he was trying to participate.
Marshall finally admitted the altercation had happened at his house, but that he did not know where anybody else was that was involved in the fight.
Due to the call about the fight, Officer Poe advised Marshall he would be issued a citation for disorderly conduct. While the Officer returned to the patrol unit to write the citation, Marshall sat on his porch.
While sitting in the patrol vehicle, Officer Poe heard Marshall begin to scream profanities. He began walking towards the neighbor’s house, to the west of his residence, throwing his hands up in an aggressive manner.
Officer Poe told him to stop, but he continued to use profanity. The Officer exited the vehicle and told Marshall that he was under arrest.
Marshall yelled no at the Officer, and began walking back to his residence. He was ordered to stop multiple times, but refused.
Officer Poe caught up to Marshall as he attempted to enter the residence.
He was placed on the ground to make the arrest. Marshall continued yelling profanities while he was escorted to the patrol vehicle.
Marshall was placed in the back seat of the patrol vehicle and transported to the Atoka County Jail for booking.
