FROM STAFF REPORTS
Lab worker faces felony charges
A former lab worker accused of falsifying the urine samples of Oklahoma County drug court participants was charged Friday with multiple felonies, court papers show. John Adam Barfield, 24, of Newalla, is facing 14 counts of false preparation of exhibits as evidence and six counts of violating the state's computer crimes act. Barfield is accused of fixing drug tests for money between Dec. 1 and Jan. 29 and using his cellphone to facilitate the transactions, according to prosecutors and court documents. Barfield falsified records to show clean urine samples when no urinalysis was actually done, and was paid $1,200 by a participant, investigators reported.
Police arrest two Edmond men
Two Edmond men who were driving a friend to the hospital because he was overdosing on black tar heroin were arrested, Oklahoma City police reported Friday. John Bond, 26, and Ryan Brittain, 25, were arrested Sunday on complaints of public drunkenness. Bond also was arrested on a warrant. About 12:45 a.m., officers pulled over Bond, who was driving his pickup almost 100 mph on Memorial Road toward Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City, police said. The officers escorted the car to the emergency room because a third man in the car was overdosing on black tar heroin, according to the police report. Bond told officers the man injected the heroin while in his truck outside of The Dugout Bar and Grill and then became unresponsive. Officers searched Bond's truck and found a spoon with black tar residue and several unused hypodermic needles.
