A Cushing, Oklahoma, man was arrested on outstanding warrants and drug and weapon complaints, after he reportedly flagged down two police officers early Sunday morning.

According to Cushing police, just after 1 a.m., while working a call in the area of 2nd and Steele Street, two officers were flagged down by a man, later identified as 26-year-old Thomas Plummer.

While speaking with Plummer, officers determined that Plummer had four outstanding Payne County warrants. The officers then told Plummer that he was under arrest due to the warrants. That's when Plummer raised his hands above his head and began to slowly back away from the officers.

Plummer then said, “I gotta show you something.” The officers grabbed Plummer's arms and secured him, according to the police report. 

Plummer reportedly told the officers that he had a gun in his jacket pocket. An officer searched Plummer and found a loaded revolver pistol containing three live 9mm rounds, a folding knife with brass knuckles, and a homemade glass smoking pipe that contained a chalky residue, later tested positive for methamphetamine.

Police said the arrest location was about 436 feet away from the Memorial Park. Plummer was then transported to the Cushing Police Department, where he was held on a complaint of possession of a controlled dangerous substance within 1000 feet of a park, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony, possession of metal knuckles, along with the four outstanding warrants.

Plummer is expected to be transported to the Payne County Sheriff's Department Monday morning.

“I want to commend the quick actions of Sgt. Sappington and Ofc. Perry, whose teamwork helped safely remove Plummer from our streets, “Chief Tully Folden said.
