(Stillwater, Okla.) – An ex-convict from Cushing who was accused of possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia with two women in Stillwater pleaded guilty to those charges Friday, along with being intoxicated in public.
Brian Adam Faires, 28, who was already on probation for crimes in Payne, Lincoln and Creek counties, was released from the Payne County Jail Friday pending his sentencing on Feb. 13, 2015.
His co-defendants, Britnee Dawn Alexander, 26, of Stillwater, and Tashauna Lynn Maxon, 29, of Stroud, both remain free on bail pending their pre-trial hearings on the three-count charge on Nov. 21 in Payne County District Court.
The trio came under investigation after Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Cory Westbrooke, who was off duty, called at 2:45 a.m. on April 27 for a Stillwater police officer to investigate a report of a man breaking the windshield of a car at the intersection of Virginia and Donaldson in Stillwater, an affidavit said.
Alexander and Maxon, sitting on the curb by the car, were “both very distraught, screaming hysterically and crying,” and were near hyperventilation when he arrived, Stillwater Police Officer Brandon Dudgeon wrote in an affidavit.
“As I looked at Britnee, I could see a small cut behind her right ear and blood smeared onto the side of her head from a cut on her ear. Britnee declined medical treatment,” the officer wrote in his affidavit.
“Britnee began telling me that she was driving the car with a front-seat passenger identified as Brian Faires. Tashauna was seated in the back of the car,” the officer wrote in his affidavit.
“As they were pulling into the apartment complex where she lives, a male in a white SUV pulled in behind her as she was trying to back into a parking space. The male got out of the SUV and started screaming at her, jumped on the hood of her car, and began punching and kicking her windshield. The male jumped off and ran west,” according to the affidavit.
Both women and Faires said they had no idea who the man was, the affidavit said.
Each one of the trio was unable to stop moving, spoke extremely rapidly, had dilated pupils and was unable to maintain a consistent line of thought, the affidavit alleged. The officer concluded that each was on some form of stimulant, the affidavit alleged.
Eventually, Maxon told the officer that they “were all three smoking meth on a country road,” the affidavit alleged.
She said, “Britnee was in the middle of leaving her boyfriend. Britnee said she needed to go back to her apartment to get some of her things and mail because she thought (he) wasn’t home right now.
“As they were on their way to the apartment, a white SUV started following them. Britnee thought the SUV was (her boyfriend’s) dad’s, but she wasn’t sure.
“As they turned into the apartment complex, they looked behind them and saw that (her boyfriend) was the one driving the SUV. Britnee tried to turn around in the parking lot,” but her boyfriend blocked her in, the affidavit alleged.
Her boyfriend “began screaming at her telling her how stupid she was for leaving him, and then he tried to open the door, but Britnee locked it. (The boyfriend) jumped on the hood of the car and started hitting and kicking the windshield.
“Brian got out of the car and started screaming back and forth,” with the boyfriend, before running off, the affidavit alleged.
When the woman tried to drive away, her boyfriend jumped in the open door and started choking her with his arm around her neck, the affidavit alleged.
“When I asked Tashauna if she knew why Britnee would be lying to me, she said that Britnee didn’t want to send (her boyfriend) to prison because he is her baby’s daddy,” the officer wrote in his affidavit.
“I asked Tashauna how much meth was left after they got through smoking. She told me there was no meth left. I asked her where their pipes were, and she said that they threw all of the pipes. I told Tashauna that I didn’t believe all the meth was gone or that they threw all of the pipes.
“Tashauna then told me that Britnee and Brian might have some or there could still be some in the car,” the officer alleged in his affidavit.
“Tashuana stood up and began digging at the back of her pants crying. I asked her if she had a pipe in her pants and she began crying harder and said yes.
“I asked her again if she had meth or a pipe in her pants and she told me that she had needles in her bra. I asked her if the needles were loaded, and she said yes. I asked her what they were loaded with, and she said meth.
“Sgt. Savory decided to have Tashauna wait to remove the needles until she arrived at the jail so a female jailer could remove them,” the officer wrote in his affidavit.
“Sgt. Priegel also advised me that Britnee told him she had some hydrocodone pills in her bra. Sgt. Priegel also advised me that Britnee was asking him to get some medication out of her purse and when he opened her purse, he found a set of digital scales. At this point, he stopped looking through her purse and told her that her medication would have to wait,” the affidavit alleged.
The officer decided to search the car “based on Tashuana’s admitted possession and admittance that they were all smoking meth in the car, along with her admission to the possibility of meth or paraphernalia left in the car,” the affidavit alleged.
On the front passenger’s side where Faires was seated, the officer found a brown pill bottle containing 32.5 pills identified as alprazolam, a generic form of Xanax, the affidavit alleged.
Lying next to the pill bottle was a capped syringe and another pill bottle containing a plastic baggy with methamphetamine, the affidavit alleged. A box of sandwich baggies was located in the front passenger’s side floorboard, the affidavit alleged.
“Sgt. Savory agreed to transport Britnee and Tashauna to the Stillwater Police Department so their items could be removed from their bras,” the affidavit said.
“Jailer Briana Brown told me that as she was processing Britnee she removed a total of two pills from her bra,” that were hydrocodone, the affidavit alleged.
“Jailer Cole Bunch told me that as he was processing Tashauna, she reached into her shirt and removed three loaded syringes from her bra,” the affidavit alleged.
When the officer opened the pouch of a backpack – that had the name FAIRES 14 written on it — where a needle was located, he found a package of rolling papers and a pen tube melted on the end, which he said was a homemade smoking pipe, the affidavit alleged.
Inside Britnee Alexander’s purse, the officer found another syringe under the digital scales, the affidavit alleged.
“Jailer Bunch came to me and told me that while he was inventorying Britnee’s medication for the jail, he located a pill bottle,” that contained only one prescribed pill for her but also had three pills identified as alprazolam, the affidavit alleged.
According to the state Department of Corrections, Faires was released from prison four years ago after serving less than two months of a one-year sentence followed by four years of probation for false declaration of ownership in pawn in 2008, uttering a forged instrument in 2009, and attempting to obtain a controlled drug by fraud in 2008, all in Payne County.
Faires also was placed on five years’ probation in Lincoln County for attempting to obtain a controlled drug by fraud in 2008, DOC records show.
Faires also was placed on four years’ probation in the Drumright division of Creek County District Court for grand larceny and possessing stolen property in 2013, DOC records show.
