WATONGA — James “Icy” Daukei Jr., 20, the man arrested in connection with the death of 8-year-old Rosalin Reynolds, has been in trouble with the law before, court records show.
At the time of his arrest, he was out on bond and awaiting trial on a Nov. 17 felony charge of assault with a dangerous weapon, a Nov. 18 misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace, and a July 21 misdemeanor charge of resisting an officer and public intoxication.
The charges were filed in Blaine County District Court after officers responded to fights involving Daukei. Bond on the weapons charge was set at $5,000, bond on the disturbing the peace charge was set at $1,000, and he was released on his own recognizance on the resisting a police officer and public intoxication charge, records show. His next court appearance was scheduled for Monday.
About the charges
The felony assault charge was filed after police were called to an Oct. 31 fight.
Police reported that after they arrived, Daukei started walking toward officers holding a three- to four-foot-long black pipe. He threatened police and threw the pipe, nearly hitting an officer, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. He then threw the top of a doghouse at the officers and asked his brother to get his dog so he could turn it loose on police.
Daukei charged at the officers several times but would not leave his property, saying it was Indian Trust Land, the affidavit states. His mother told police they needed to get the people who were selling drugs to him.
Daukei was arrested again Nov. 15 after officers responded to a fight inside a residence. An officer reported Daukei spit on the back seat of a patrol car as he was being taken to jail.
He pleaded no contest in 2009 to a larceny of merchandise misdemeanor charge in Blaine County. The charge stemmed from the theft of two 30-packs of beer from a Love's Country Store.
