Sheriff’s office releases names in arrests

NORMAN — A mother and son have been booked into the F. DeWayne Beggs Detention Center after a Tuesday welfare check went awry.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Meghan McCormick in an email said deputies arrested Jay Dustin Keene Privett, 31, at a Noble residence in the 7000 block of 117th Street after he reportedly got up and started kicking at a responding deputy, leading to an altercation.

McCormick said the man was arrested on two complaints of assault and battery on a police officer, indecent exposure and resisting arrest.

Deputies also arrested Margaret Privett, 55, on complaints of assault and battery on a police officer, obstruction and escape from arrest, though McCormick said she did not have additional information on the mother’s alleged actions.

Two deputies were transported to Norman Regional Hospital after the incident for medical evaluations. McCormick said they’re “doing OK.”

The deputies, whose names were not released, have been placed on light duty after the incident.

A jail official said the mother and son remained incarcerated Wednesday evening.

The jail official said Jay Dustin Keene Privett’s bond has been set at $2,000 for complaints of indecent exposure and resisting arrest, though his bond for the two complaints of assault and battery on a police officer has yet to be set.

Margaret Privett’s bond has been set at $6,000 for complaints of assault and battery on a police officer and obstruction, though she has no bond for the complaint of escape from arrest, the official said.
