5/16/2013 8:32:00 PM Perkins man ordered into drug treatment center
By Patti Weaver Journal Correspondent
A Perkins man has been ordered into a drug treatment center as a condition of probation for attempting to burglarize a car and spitting on a Perkins police officer. Perry Michael Young, 21, who pleaded guilty to those charges Friday and public intoxication, went through competency proceedings and was found competent, Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler noted.
Young's courtappointed attorney, Royce Hobbs, told the judge in court Friday, "Except when he gets mad, he's competent." Young has been in custody since his arrest last October, court records show.
As part of a plea bargain, Young was placed on four years' probation on his felony counts, fined $150, and ordered to spend 30 days in jail, which he had already completed, prosecutor Debra Vincent noted. On the prosecutor's recommendation, the judge ordered Friday that Young be immediately transferred to a drug treatment center after which he may be required to complete the Payne County Drug Court program.
In an affidavit, Perkins Police Officer Kyle Howard wrote that shortly before 10 p.m. on Oct. 21, 2012, he was at the OnCue south of the police station when he was approached by a woman who works at the convenience store.
"She informed me that a Perry Young (I knew of the subject from a previous contact) tried to break into her car," 15 minutes earlier in an incident witnessed by her friend, the officer wrote in his affidavit.
"As I was walking with her, a male came to me and asked if I wanted to talk to Perry Young," whom he had seen by the Senior Citizens building and heard him yelling 'Shit's going to go down tonight,' over and over," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
When he found Young walking on Chantry Street and asked him what he was doing earlier at OnCue, "Young told me 'nothing,'" the officer wrote in his affidavit. Asked if he tried to break into a vehicle, he said that he didn't and began calling everybody racist, the affidavit said. When Young was asked by the officer about how much he had to drink, Young said, "just a little shot," the affidavit said.
"He then obstructed my investigation by taking three steps towards me yelling slurred words that I could not make out and attempted to put both his hands on me," the officer wrote in his affidavit. "As he was taking his steps, I took one step forward and put my left hand in his center chest and pushed him backwards. "I told him not to take aggressive stances with me and do not charge me again," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
Young said he wasn't doing anything "and put his right arm out and made a fist and inched it close to me. I told him I wasn't going to mess with him or play games and to put his arm down," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
"Young took 2-3 seconds and then put his arm down. I then told Perry Young that he was under arrest because he was in public intoxicated," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
"He then looked at me and said, 'Oh, you're going to arrest me?' I said I was. Then he said, 'No, you're not b....!, then started running eastbound on Chantry escaping from lawful detention.
"Myself, Iowa Tribe Officer Martin and Deputy Henninger started running after Young, and I yelled 'Stop! Police!' but he failed to do so," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
"As I was getting closer to Perry Young, he started to stumble. I then tackled Young to the ground where his stomach was on the ground. "Deputy Henninger and Officer Martin then went on either side of Young and each grabbed an arm. I then took out my handcuffs and had to forcibly take both his wrists and put them in the handcuffs because he was resisting arest," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
"Young was yelling at myself, Officer Martin and Deputy Henninger saying 'I'm going to kill your families!'" the officer wrote in his affidavit. "After I successfully handcuffed Young, I then double-locked the handcuffs so they wouldn't tighten on his wrists if he tried to resist further," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
"After I got him up off the ground, I noticed slight bleeding from his lip. He then told me that I was 'going to f...... die, your family is dead, all f...... dead!" the officer wrote in his affidavit. After Young was placed in the patrol car with the deputy's assistance, "As I was writing my time down that I arrested Young, he unbuckled himself and got behind me.
"He then called me a 'f...... b....' and spit on the back of my head," before laughing and calling the officer another name, the affidavit said.
"I then touched the back of my head and felt his saliva...Deputy Henninger told me via radio that he had a plexiglass divider in his vehicle that Young could not spit through," the officer wrote in his affidavit. While Young was being transported to the Payne County Jail, the deputy pulled over at 80th and Perkins Road, the affidavit said.
"He informed me that Young was kicking his cage. At that time, he put shackles on Young's ankles. Young was still saying he was doing to kill mine and Deputy Henninger's family," the affidavit said.
"Once we arrived at the jail facility, Perry Young had to be taken by Deputy Henninger and several jail staff members and put in a restraint chair due to his behavior," which included spitting and saying he was going to kill jail staff and their families, the affidavit said.
"While I was in booking, Perkins Officer Jason Galt said he saw damage on the female's car at the OnCue from throwing rocks at it," the officer wrote in his affidavit.
Because Young was given a deferred sentence as part of a plea bargain, which included a count of attempted escape from arrest being dismissed, he will not have a felony criminal record if he successfully completes probation.
