By Patti Weaver
An ex-convict has been given a three-year prison term for possessing crack cocaine with intent to distribute in Stillwater -- where he gave an officer a false name and attempted to escape after a traffic stop.
Lamarr Eugene Black Sr., 43, of Guthrie, who has a history of drug convictions in Logan County, accepted a plea bargain Friday under which he will be on probation for three years on his release from prison.
In his Payne County case to which he pleaded guilty Friday, Black was arrested in Stillwater at Lakeview and Washington Streets at 11:15 p.m. on April 7 following a traffic stop by Stillwater Police Officer Tom Comstock. Black, who was driving under suspension, repeatedly gave the officer his brother's name rather than his own, Comstock wrote an affidavit.
Black failed to comply with orders to show the officer his hands and was tased, the affidavit said. By Patti Weaver Journal Correspondent A Cushing woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend has avoided a jury trial this week by entering a guilty plea to domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Robin Leola McGee, 26, has been released on a personal recognizance bond pending her July 12 sentencing by District Judge Phillip Corley, who ordered a background report.
McGee admitted in court last week that she had used a folding knife to stab a boyfriend at least three times in the abdomen and chest at his residence in the 400 block of E. Cherry Street in Cushing.
McGee had been arrested at 9:20 a.m. on March 18, 2012, by Cushing Police Officer Matt Piatt -- who was sent to the Cushing hospital at 2:48 a.m. that day to talk to a stabbing victim, according to his affidavit.
The victim said that McGee had been living with him at his residence for the past three days, the affidavit said. He said that they began arguing and McGee struck him in the head with her right closed fist, the affidavit said. Cushing woman admits stabbing boyfriend He said the argument continued outside and McGee stabbed him three times, "once in the stomach, once in the left chest, and once in the upper chest below the neck line," the affidavit said.
McGee admitted she had assaulted her boyfriend with a knife that was thrown on top of an adjacent building by another one of her male friends, who was not charged, court records show.
That male friend "stated he did witness the assault and threw the knife on the roof of the adjacent building in an attempt to conceal it from law enforcement," the affidavit said.
While she was free on $10,000 bail in that case, McGee was charged with illegally using another man's BMW that was wrecked on River Road just west of Highway 108. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Darren Potter reported that at 12:59 a.m. May 25, 2012, he was called to a one-vehicle accident, according to his affidavit.
When he arrived at the scene on River Road just west of Highway 108, Cushing Fire Department ambulance personnel were treating McGee and a 48-year-old man -- both of whom talked to the trooper in the back of the Cushing ambulance, the affidavit said.
"They explained that they were out 'back roading' with two other girls. They said they were in the back seat and the two other girls were in the front.
"They said that there was another vehicle following them. After the accident, they said the other vehicle stopped and assisted with getting the other two girls out, but left them and sped away," the affidavit said. During the trooper's investigation, he determined that a red 2009 BMW had turned onto River Road from Highway 108, the affidavit said.
"The driver was going too fast to make a left turn; the vehicle went into a broadside slide and departed the road to the right.
"The vehicle then struck a large piece of concrete and rolled one-quarter time coming to rest on its top in a deep ditch along the Cimarron River," the affidavit said.
After a wrecker pulled out the BMW that was registered to an Osage County man, the trooper noticed there was a child safety seat in the left rear seat, the affidavit said.
"I then went to the Cushing hospital. While at the hospital, I learned that Robin McGee had left the hospital against medical advice.
"She was being treated for chemical burns to her leg and crotch area consistent with a 'shake and bake' meth lab.
She also had bruising on her left shoulder from the seat belt," the affidavit said.
The 48-year-old man, who was not charged, was still at the hospital and "again told me there were two other girls in the car with them," the trooper wrote in his affidavit.
"He stated Robin was sitting in the back seat in the middle and he was sitting in the back seat on the right side," the affidavit said.
That man said he did not know who the other girls were or who the occupants of the other vehicle were, the affidavit said.
Later that morning, the trooper was asked to call the BMW owner who said he lives near Pawhuska, the affidavit said.
"He told me that he was contacted by Robin McGee and that she had told him what had happened to his car," the affidavit alleged.
The BMW owner said "McGee had stayed with him a few times, but they are not in a serious relationship," the affidavit said. He said he had gone to visit his mother in the hospital, and when he returned home on the evening of May 24, 2012, his BMW was gone, the affidavit said.
He said "McGee had driven the car a few times, but did not have permission to drive it to Cushing," the affidavit alleged.
The trooper received consent from him to search his BMW, where the trooper found in the center console a small bag of marijuana containing half a pill of what was believed to be Lortab, the affidavit alleged.
That case remains pending against McGee. Man gets 3-year prison term for cocaine "During the subsequent patdown, Detective Elliott observed a plastic bag under the tongue of Black.
He was ordered to spit it out but refused. "A plastic bag containing approximately 1.8 grams of crack cocaine packaged in five separate package was removed from Black's mouth," the affidavit said.
"I had an ambulance respond to check on a laceration Black received on his lip.
The ambulance driver advised Officer Manuel the individual was actually Lamarr Black," not his brother, Comstock wrote in his affidavit.
"Black was transported to SMC due to high blood pressure. I took custody of the crack cocaine removed from Black's mouth and the large amount of money he had in his sweatshirt pocket,"
Comstock wrote in his affidavit. "The money was in small denominations, which is consistent with my knowledge of how individuals sell crack cocaine,"
Comstock wrote in his affidavit. According to court records, Black was already on seven and one-half years' probation for maintaining a place for keeping drugs in Guthrie in 2007, for which he had also been given a 150-day jail term.
Black also had a 2005 conviction for drug possession in Logan County for which he was given a one-year jail term followed by four years of probation. Black also had convictions in 1995 and 1998 for drug possession in Logan County, court records show.
