Prisoner has long rap sheet

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Both men were dressed in black-and-white-striped jail uniforms. Clemmons was still wearing stripes when he was captured, but Brotherton stole green pants and a brown coat from the Expo, Hewett said.

Reports that Brotherton was armed appear to be false.

“The indication that we have right now is there was no gun,” Hewett said. “We did find two rounds of live ammunition in the pickup.”

Clemmons told Hewett there was a handgun and is still saying Brotherton forced him to get in the pickup, but Hewett said the evidence does not support that at this time. Clemmons is being charged as a participant in the escape.

“Right now, we’re going under the assumption that no weapon was involved,” Hewett said.

Hewett said Brotherton is from California and wanted to get back there.

“Norman police department did an outstanding, professional job,” Hewett said. “The main thing is no one got hurt. This is what worried me tremendously.”

McClain County was holding Brotherton on possession of a controlled dangerous substance, a criminal felony. Charges were filed on Jan. 31. Bond was set at $5,000. In September, he was hit with misdemeanor charges in McClain County for driving with a revoked or suspended license as well as failure to carry insurance verification and speeding.

But Brotherton has three recent felony convictions in Oklahoma County. Brotherton pleaded guilty to three felony charges on Jan. 22. Court records indicate each of those offenses occurred on different dates during 2012:

· Sept. 10 — unauthorized use of a vehicle

· Sept. 11— making a false declaration of ownership to a pawnbroker

· Oct. 25 — larceny of an automobile

Brotherton also has a felony pending in Logan County, according to court records. Logan County charged him with two counts of larceny, one larceny in the nighttime from person and one larceny of a motor vehicle. The date of the offenses were Oct. 7, 2012, with the charges filed Feb. 5, 2013, according to court records.
