Officer John Marcus Weber Arrested for Giving Alcohol to Minors

A Sallisaw police lieutenant turned himself in Friday after an investigation into alcohol-related misconduct led to a warrant.

John Marcus Weber was booked on two felony counts and one misdemeanor count of furnishing alcohol to a minor Friday morning. Weber, 29, allegedly provided hard liquor or high-point beer and 3.2 beer to teenagers.

The warrant, issued Thursday and signed Friday morning, came about after the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office requested that the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation look into complaints against the officer.

Weber's bail was set at $10,000 for which he has made bond.
