Spun off into a corn field
NAME: Trevor Mark Hill
AGE: 29 or 30
RESIDENCE: Ponca City
CHARGES: Endangering others while attempting to elude an officer
DETAILS: Osage County deputy Brett Barnett, about 3:38 a.m. June 18, noticed that a white car he was following was doing about 60 miles per hour in a 50 mph zone, just east of Raintree on Highway 60. Deputy Barnett turned on his red-and-blue emergency lights and the white car pulled over. Barnett made contact with the driver of the white car, who was identified as Trevor Mark Hill, and obtained the motorist’s driver’s license and insurance card. While doing a records check, Barnett noticed that the insurance card Hill had provided was expired. Barnett asked Hill to step out of his car to talk about the insurance, and Hill reportedly said, “I don’t think so.” Hill then reportedly put his vehicle in gear, made a U-turn and drove away to the east on Highway 60. Barnett pursued Hill and reportedly noted that Hill’s vehicle was doing about 85 mph in a 45 mph zone, near the intersection of Highway 60 and McCord Road. Hill was reportedly driving his car down the center line of the road — straddling the center line — which reportedly caused a westbound truck to have to pull over to the shoulder of the highway to avoid a collision. Barnett reportedly noticed Hill was attempting to make a right turn onto 9 Mile Road, and Barnett said in a case affidavit that his vehicle bumped into the rear of Hill’s vehicle, causing it to spin and go off into a corn field. Deputy Zachary West arrested Hill in the corn field and Barnett drove him to the county jail. In a June 18 hearing in Osage County District Court, the court entered a not guilty plea for Hill.
Trooper responded to call about attempted sale of stolen vehicle
NAME: Mickell Dewayne Adams
CHARGES: Possession of a stolen vehicle; assault and battery; public intoxication and disturbing the peace
DETAILS: State Trooper Justin Garrison, about 4 p.m. on June 16, responded to a call regarding a person in a stolen vehicle reportedly trying to sell the vehicle at an address on Oak Street in Prue. The vehicle in question was described as a Chevrolet HHR that had numerous dents and scratches on it. While Trooper Garrison was responding, the man driving the Chevrolet HHR reportedly assaulted the person who made the call to authorities. Garrison drove to Prue and observed a red HHR in the parking lot of a Dollar General store. Garrison reportedly observed a man with dark, wavy hair changing a tire on the front, right side of the HHR. Garrison turned on his emergency lights, got out of his patrol vehicle and approached the man. Garrison said in a case affidavit that he placed the man in handcuffs for investigative detention. The trooper subsequently made observations about the man that led him to believe the man was under the influence of drugs. He asked the man, subsequently identified as Mickell Dewayne Adams, if he had any drugs, and Adams reportedly denied having any drugs. Garrison placed Adams in his patrol vehicle and conducted a records check regarding the red HHR. The trooper received information to the effect the vehicle had been stolen. Garrison asked Troop K to confirm the stolen status of the HHR through the Tulsa Police Department, which Troop K reportedly did. Garrison transported Adams to the Osage County jail for booking. Garrison subsequently had contact with the owner of the vehicle, who reportedly identified Adams as the person who assaulted him and stole his vehicle. In a June 17 hearing in Osage County District Court, the court entered a not guilty plea for Adams. A plea hearing in the case has been scheduled for Aug. 14.
Found unconscious at casino with syringe in his hand
NAME: Aaron Carter Hinojosa
CHARGES: Unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute; possession of forged notes or instruments; actual physical control of vehicle while under the influence; and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia
DETAILS: Officer Dakota Doyle, of the Osage Nation Police Department, about 2:10 a.m. on June 11, was dispatched to the Tulsa Osage Casino on West 36th Street North. When Officer Doyle arrived at the casino, he learned that a man had been found unconscious at the steering wheel of a vehicle, with a syringe in one of his hands. An attempt had already been made to wake the man, but he had reportedly gone right back into unconsciousness. Officer Doyle reportedly went to the driver’s side of the suspect vehicle, opened the door and grabbed the syringe and needle from the man’s hand. The unconscious man became conscious at that point, and Officer Doyle instructed him to get out of the car without reaching for anything. The man, subsequently identified as Aaron Carter Hinojosa, reportedly said he didn’t know where he was or what was going on. Officer Doyle helped Hinojosa out of his vehicle. The officer reportedly asked for and received permission to search Hinojosa’s pockets. Officer Doyle also reportedly spotted, in clear sight, another syringe, which was filled with liquid. He placed the syringe in a bag, to be tested. During a search of the vehicle, the officer reportedly found three fake $50 bills, drug paraphernalia items, and a crystalline substance consistent with methamphetamine. Officer Doyle administered field sobriety testing. A court record shows Hinojosa pleaded guilty in a June 26 hearing in Osage County District Court and was placed on sentence deferral status until June 25, 2025.
