A Harrah woman who was jailed on complaints of allegedly throwing a man from his wheelchair is offering her side of the story. She was released when charges were never filed.

Bonnie Shirley Davis, 48, spent nine days in Oklahoma County jail following a June 18 incident in which police responded to the home where she worked. Davis is an evening caregiver.

She was providing medical care for John Gordon, a wheelchair-bound man who struggled with his mobility and equilibrium, Davis said.

Police and Davis agree that John Gordon fell out of his wheelchair and suffered abrasions to his back and elbows that evening. But Davis said how the fall happened has yet to be released.

According to the arrest report, Gordon’s brother, Donnie Gordon, told police Davis threw his brother from the chair and he agreed to press charges. Davis was arrested on assault complaints and booked into jail.

Davis said the narrative of that report is inaccurate.

John Gordon did not move forward in filing charges and the district attorney declined to pursue it, so the case was dropped, police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said. Davis was released from jail June 26, a jail spokeswoman confirmed.
