A Colbert man was arrested after authorities said he pulled a handgun on a bar owner and later assaulted an emergency medical technician.
Jerry Dwayne Haislip, 45, Caddo, has been charged with feloniously pointing a firearm and assault and battery on an EMT.
Haislip was arrested earlier this week after authorities responded to a call about someone pointing a handgun at a person at Holly’s Border Bar on Franklin Street in Colbert.
Deputy John Walker and Choctaw Officer Blake Wigington arrived at the scene, and according to Walker’s affidavit, Holly Means, the business owner, said a man came into the business, pointed a handgun at her husband, Bryan Means, and said, “I’m going to kill you.”
Mrs. Means said her husband subdued the man (who was later identified as Haislip) and took the gun away from him. Mr. Means, according to the affidavit, said the man had been at the bar about two hours earlier and was asked to leave after getting into an argument with another customer. Means said the man tried to punch him before being forced out the door. About 20 minutes later, Haislip returned, and was again asked to leave, which he did after a scuffle.
Haislip, according to the affidavit, returned a third time, and pointed a gun at Mr. Means, who then grabbed Haislip and slammed him onto a pool table. Another person, Larry Lewellen, then took the gun away from Haislip.
The pistol, a Hi-Point .45, was loaded, and a round was chambered, according to the affidavit.
Haislip, who had a large laceration on his head, was taken by Colbert EMS to the Medical Center of Southeastern Oklahoma. He refused medical treatment and was then taken to jail. The affidavit states Haislip, who was still bleeding, said he wanted to go back to the hospital.
According to the affidavit, Haislip spat on an EMT and tried to kick her in the face. He was eventually taken to the hospital, and after treatment, was brought back to jail.
