On Dec. 11, Myers received a 30-day sanction for fighting with another inmate. He punched the inmate two additional times while the inmate was being restrained. On Jan. 12, Myers got into a fight with an inmate and had to be pepper-sprayed when he refused to stop fighting.
On Jan. 31, Myers recited violent and obscene lyrics by rapper Tupac, telling the detention officer “it was a thug life,” and he was the “modern-day Tupac.” The officer also testified that Myers told him “he doesn't care about county (jail),” and he would “be out … in 15 months and back on the streets.”
In August, Kirby ruled there was enough evidence to prosecute Myers, who is accused of shooting into a crowd of unarmed people.
Prosecutors, Kirby wrote, proved “there is good cause to believe the defendant would not reasonably complete a plan of rehabilitation, and that the public would not be adequately protected if the defendant were to be sentenced as a youthful offender.”
Defense attorneys argued that Myers, then 16, acted in self-defense because he felt threatened by a group.
Defense attorneys told the judge they plan to appeal the ruling.
Myers is set to appear in Oklahoma County District Court on March 6.
