Clayton police had a busy night when they answered a call dealing with domestic assault and battery.
Upon arrive at the residence, Assistant Chief Randall McGillvary noticed Arthur Seybold, male of Tuskahoma, asleep on the floor in the living room of the home. McGillvary advised the Chief of Police, Roger Erwin, that the City of Clayton had several outstanding warrants on him and then made contact with the woman who had made the initial call. Chief Erwin confirmed this and placed him under arrest.
Erwin performed a quick search of Seybold and asked him if there was anything else on his person. Seybold responded, “No, just my wallet.” Seybold was placed in the police car and transported to Clayton City Jail.
McGillvary completed the A&B call and then returned to the jail with Erwin. Upon their arrival at the jail, Erwin removed Seybold from his unit and asked him again if he had anything on him or tried to hide anything in the police unit.
Seybold responded, “No I did not and I know better than to try to hide anything.”
Erwin escorted Seybold into the jail where he was again searched, along with his wallet. While searching Seybold’s wallet, erwin found a cigarette wrapper that contained a green leafy substance that later field tested positive for marijuana. Erwin asked Seybold what it was and he stated, “Looks like Marijuana and it;s not mine. I don’t know who put that in there. There will be a whipping coming when I find out!”
Seybold was then asked to remove his shoes and McGillvary observed two hypodermic syringes fall out onto the floor. Seybold’s response was, “Oh man!”
Seybold was then placed in a holding cell until he could be processed and transported to Pushmataha County Jail on his new charges.
