NEWKIRK — A preliminary hearing is set for Andrew Quinn Pappan, 25, Ponca City, in Kay County District Court.
Pappan has two felony cases pending from 2020.
On Sept. 24, he was charged with felony counts of first degree burglary, conspiracy, and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. On Dec. 1, he was charged with endangering others while eluding police, knowingly concealing stolen property and a misdemeanor charge of driving with out a license.
In that case, Ponca City police report that on Aug. 30 an officer responded to the 300 block of east Hazel for reports of suspicious activity next to a red car in the alley. The officer reports recognizing Pappan as the driver.
The officer reportedly knew he did not have a driver’s license and attempted to get behind him, but Pappan reportedly sped up and went south in the alley between 3rd and 4th Streets. A pursuit ensued. Police report multiple vehicles were forced to stop abruptly to keep from hitting Pappan’s vehicle.
Police report Pappan went left of center to go around a vehicle traveling northbound in the 700 block of N. 2nd Street. Officers terminated the pursuit on north 2nd after seeing residents outside and determining it was too dangerous.
Police learned the vehicle was stolen and later recovered it at Paladin Apartments. Pappan was arrested on Sept. 20 by an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper on Interstate 35. Pappan is being held on $52,900 bond.
