Anytime an officer of the law is arrested for domestic violence, per the lautenberg act, he should be charged by the State's Attorney's with no involvement from the police union. He committed a crime and was also drunk. No excuses!
Oklahoma State Highway Patrol trooper's Jason Wayne Henry has been arrested in Guthrie for domestic abuse. Henry was arrested early New Year's Day following an altercation with his girlfriend at the home of the woman's ex-husband.
Henry is also charged in Logan County District Court with obstructing an officer and public intoxication.
He was put on administrative leave with pay Thursday after being named in a misdemeanor domestic abuse charge.
Henry, 32, was arrested early New Year's Day following an altercation with his live-in girlfriend, E. Dixon, according to court records.
Henry, who has been a state trooper since 1999, is free from jail on his own recognizance. He appeared Wednesday in Logan County District Court in Guthrie on the criminal counts, and for a protective order application filed by Dixon. An emergency protective order was granted against Henry.
His next court appearance on the criminal counts and protective order is scheduled Jan. 11.
