(Stillwater, Okla.) — An ex-convict with a long criminal record in Payne County was charged today with possessing a stolen vehicle in Cushing on April Fool’s Day — about two weeks after he was released from prison, according to state Department of Corrections records.

Brandon Michael Ray Thompson, 39, has also been known as Jason Reactor or Mike Reactor, DOC records show.

Thompson was arraigned Thursday by video from the Payne County Jail before Special District Judge Michael Kulling, who set his bail at $20,000, court records show.

Thompson has been scheduled to appear before a Payne County judge on Monday when he can seek a preliminary hearing on his latest charge.

According to DOC records, Thompson had been previously convicted in Payne County of:

* carrying marijuana into the county jail in 2015, for which he was originally in 2016 placed on 10 years of probation except 274 days in jail, but that sentence was revoked six months later to nine years and 91 days in prison, from which he was released on March 14;

* drug possession in 2015, for which he was given the same concurrent sentence as above;

* first-degree burglary in 2007, for which he was given in 2008 a five-year prison term of which he served four years and four months;

* assault and battery on a police officer in 2007, for which he was given in 2008 a concurrent five-year prison term of which he served three years and five months;

* assault and/or battery with a dangerous weapon in 2004, for which he was given in 2008 a concurrent five-year prison term of which he served two years and three months;

* assault and battery on a police officer in 2003, for which his sentence was originally deferred, but changed in 2008 to a concurrent five-year prison term of which he served two and one-half years.
