OKLAHOMA CITY -- A man claiming he was badly beaten said a bail bonds company is responsible. Jason Adair said he was wrongfully attacked by a bail bondsman over a traffic ticket he was in the middle of paying off.

Jason Adair said he had just arrived at his workplace in northwest Oklahoma City when a bail bondsman jumped and kicked him, even smashed his head into the concrete over and over.

The bail bonds company said the story was made up by a fugitive to make them look bad.

Adair said because of the incident were the bail bondsman beat and tased him, he is now confined to a bed and needs around the clock care.

"I put my hands up and right after that....I saw a light. At first I thought it was a shot, I saw a light and felt something go into me," said Jason Adair.

Adair said he was targeted for a 2006 traffic ticket from Bethany he was in the middle of paying off and beaten for no reason..

"I could understand if I pulled a weapon but nothing at all," said Jason Adair.

"They cursed at him and said he liked being tased, just very scary to watch," said Shasta Adair, Jason's wife.

All City Bail Bonds, located in downtown Oklahoma City, denies those allegations. All City Bail Bonds' attorney told News 9 "The fugitive was perfectly fine after being tased, was allowed to smoke until the police arrived, was coherent, talkative, and clearly not medically at risk."

The attorney said Adair was a fugitive with a dangerous past who in 2007 pleaded guilty to assault and battery with a deadly weapon. The attorney said Adair was a fugitive with a warrant out for his arrest.

"I got down to the jail and I don't even have a warrant. The whole time they spent an hour, two hours messing with me, couldn't they have been catching a real criminal?" Adair said.

Adair said he's seeking legal counsel and plans to sue All City Bail Bonds.

News 9 spoke to the Bethany Court Clerk's Office who said Adair did forfeit his bond when he failed to appear in court last week. They said a warrant was going to be issued but the paperwork had not been finalized.
