(Stillwater, Okla.) — A pedestrian has been charged with throwing a rock at a Morrison man’s moving vehicle on Interstate-35 in Payne County.
Cordarryl Glenn Demby, 28, of Houston, remains in the Payne County Jail on $20,000 bail pending a Thursday court appearance.
If convicted of throwing an object at a moving vehicle, Demby could be given a 10-year prison term and a $10,000 fine, court records show.
Demby was arrested by Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper James Ritze about 2 p.m. on Sept. 16 after the driver from Morrison identified him, an affidavit alleged.
The trooper was patrolling Payne County at 1 p.m. when he was advised that a driver on I-35 said “his vehicle had been struck by something thrown by a black male subject walking down the shoulder of Interstate 35,” according to Ritze’s affidavit.
“While I was en route out to Interstate 35, dispatch advised me that another individual (the driver from Morrison) had called and stated that his vehicle had been struck by something thrown by a black male subject walking down the shoulder of Interstate 35 and then ran east into a field,” the affidavit said.
When the trooper arrived, Payne County Sheriff’s Deputies Rockford Brown and Gregg Russell were talking to Demby, the affidavit said.
“Deputy Brown asked Demby where he was coming from and if he threw any objects at any vehicles. Demby replied he was walking from the truck rest stop and he did not throw any objects at any vehicles,” the affidavit said.
After the deputy placed Demby in his patrol unit, the trooper asked the driver from Morrison to identify if Demby was the man who threw an object at his vehicle, the affidavit said. When he saw Demby, the Morrison man said yes, the affidavit alleged.
