Sheriff's office: Man gives deputy his driver's license, then tosses gun as he runs away
OKMULGEE, Okla. (KTUL) -- A man has turned himself in after the Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office posted his driver's license to Facebook along side a gun he allegedly tossed while running from a deputy.
According to the sheriff's office, a deputy stopped a vehicle Thursday for a defective tail light near 2nd and Mission in Okmulgee. The driver, Keaton Jordan, was asked to step out of the car.
The sheriff's office says the deputy saw a pistol magazine with ammunition in a door panel and when the deputy asked Jordan if he had a gun Jordan ran, tossing a pistol over a fence.
The deputy already had Jordan's driver's license and retrieved the gun as evidence. After getting an arrest warrant and posting his name to Facebook, Jordan surrendered.
