A Stillwater man is in Payne County Jail on $25,000 bond after he reportedly told two Stillwater police detectives he was “going to have people go … and take care of business” at the detectives’ respective houses.
Ishmael Farrakan Muhammad was arrested Friday afternoon and has since been charged with assault and battery on a police officer, threatening a violent act, possession of controlled drug without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest. On the felony assault charge, the 29-year-old faces six years to life in prison and a maximum $10,000 fine.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed in Payne County District Court, officers made contact with Muhammad in the area of Eastern Avenue and Doty Street and one detective made contact with Muhammad, who was riding a bicycle, because he knew there were outstanding felony warrants for his arrest.
Muhammad allegedly resisted arrest throughout the encounter, tightening his arms to refuse to have his arms placed behind his back; “had to be physically forced onto the ground and then his hands were physically forced … and placed into handcuffs;” grabbed one detective’s hands as he tried to search his person and kicked at officers while on the ground. The detectives and other SPD officers allegedly recovered a glass methamphetamine pipe from Muhammad’s pockets as well as two alleged flexerill pills in his pocket, which Muhammad didn’t have a prescription for.
The affidavit continues that after continuing to resist arrest as he was put into a patrol vehicle, Muhammad told two detectives he knew which vehicles both officers drove, implied he knew where both detectives lived and “perfectly described how … parks his patrol vehicle.” Muhammad was arrested on several city warrants and county warrants that included possession of meth with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction and possession of a firearm with a removed or defaced serial number during the commission of a felony.
