A Yukon-area man faces up to 15 years in prison for allegedly assaulting three police officers.
Corey Delon Gordon, 42, was charged Aug. 19 in Canadian County District Court with three counts of assault and battery on a police officer.
Canadian County prosecutors allege Gordon “willfully and unlawfully” struck the three Oklahoma City officers “with the intent” to injure them, knowing they were performing their official police duties.
The felony charge stems from an incident that occurred Aug. 11 at the defendant’s home in the 10900 block of N.W. 96th Street, northeast of Yukon.
Oklahoma City Police responded to the residence at about 10:51 p.m. that day, according to a probable cause affidavit.
“Upon arrival the officers attempted to place (Gordon) into investigative detention,” the affidavit indicates. “Corey then resisted being detained and became offensively aggressive without a weapon. Corey began to strike officers with his fists and elbows.
“During the struggle, Corey struck all three officers as well as grabbed at them.”
Officer Anthony Stacy, who allegedly was struck “multiple times” in the face and body, reportedly had his body camera ripped from its mount and a gun magazine taken from his pouch. The defendant also allegedly grabbed his protective vest.
“At one point, Corey was able to take (officer) Stacy’s taser and arm himself with it,” according to the affidavit.
The defendant also is accused of trying to kick officer Seth Mitchell and grab officer Justin Jarrett, court records show.
Each criminal count filed against Gordon is punishable by a maximum $500 fine and up to five years in prison.
Felony charges were filed in 2019 against Gordon for possession with intent to distribute cocaine, driving under the influence of alcohol and attempting to elude a police officer in Oklahoma County District Court. Those cases are still pending, court records show.
