Sossamon, 33, of Moore, was arrested on a complaint of public drunkenness. He said he was not drunk and was never tested for sobriety.
Nelson said a breathalyzer or sobriety test would not typically be given during a public drunkenness arrest.
“It's just the officer's observation,” Nelson said. “If he wants to contest the officer's observation, he'll have to go to court.”
Sossamon said it wasn't clear he was under arrest.
“They simply took me out of the car ... and placed me into the squad car and didn't say another word to me, except how to pronounce my last name. I didn't even know I was under arrest until we were en route. I asked the officer ‘Where are you taking me?'”
The men were taken to the Oklahoma County jail, where Railly remained Thursday. His bail was set at $13,000. Sossamon was released without posting bail.
