On Tuesday, October 13, 2020, an altercation occurred between two inmates of the Atoka County Jail resulted in an inmate requiring surgery.
Jailer/Dispatcher Kayla Robson allowed trustees Jessy Bailey, Dustin Callicoat, Phillip Stephens, and David Mofield to accompany her outside the Jail to smoke, when she received a call on her cellphone.
During the call, Callicoat was asked by Robson to be quiet several times while she was on the phone. Bailey advised Callicoat to be more respectful. After the second time Bailey asked him to be respectful a fight broke out between the two.
Witnesses state that Bailey told Callicoat to “shut his mouth,” while Robson was on the phone. Callicoat told Bailey not to speak to him that way.
Bailey chest bumped Callicoat before the fight broke out. Callicoat struck him approximately four times.
Bailey was taken to the Department of Corrections for medical treatment and surgery. His jaw was broken in three separate areas which required surgery. He also received a broken nose.
Callicoat is charged with aggravated assault and battery (felony).
