A Nichols Hills attorney charged Tuesday with felony drug possession was removed from a Logan County courtroom for talking too much during her formal arraignment, authorities said.

Amy McTeer, 40, was charged with methamphetamine possession, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and public intoxication, court records show.

Special Judge R.L. Hert Jr. set McTeer's bond at $10,000 for the felony count and $1,000 each for the two misdemeanor counts. A prosecutor asked for a $50,000 bond, calling McTeer — now facing charges in four criminal cases in three counties — a “flight risk.”

The court officer said McTeer interrupted the judge and the prosecutor throughout her court appearance, turning argumentative at times.

She was removed by a sheriff's deputy and offered no resistance, the officer said.

“She wouldn't stop talking,” a court officer said. “She was obviously agitated and she was talking over everyone else.”

McTeer was arrested early Monday in Guthrie after telling police she was poisoned by man who left her in front of a truck stop. Guthrie police said they found a pipe containing “white residue” in her pocket.

She told police she met the unidentified man at a truck stop in Oklahoma City and said he asked her to accompany him to Montana or North Dakota. She said “they smoked out of glass pipes.”
