WARR ACRES — Two attorneys were arrested in Warr Acres on Friday morning after witnesses reported the men driving the wrong way through a restaurant drive-through lane.
Attorney Lewis B. Moon, 42, and Oklahoma County public defender David James Bedford, 32, were arrested about 1:40 a.m. at Whataburger, 7820 N MacArthur, after an employee called police and said a driver of a Cadillac Escalade was causing a disturbance and appeared intoxicated, Warr Acres Police Sgt. Alan Davidofsky said.
Witnesses told police the men nearly hit another car in the drive-through lane.
When a police officer arrived, Moon, the driver, was uncooperative and was “taken down,” Davidofsky said. He said Moon also spit in an officer’s face.
Davidofsky said Moon pulled out a badge from the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office and claimed to be a deputy.
Sheriff’s spokesman Mark Myers said the badge actually is known as a sheriff’s “eagle badge.” The badges are given to people who support the sheriff’s department but they are not official law officer badges. Myers said the badges are not given to people who promise political support or financial contributions but are more of a “keepsake.
