5-15-18 Arrest of the Day
Odessa Police arrested Gary Mitchell Keen, date of birth 11/24/1985 on 5-14-18 at approximately 1842 hours for Assault on a Public Servant “2nd Degree Felony”, Evading Arrest or Detention “Class A Misdemeanor”, and Resisting Arrest “Class A Misdemeanor”. Officers responded to the 3800 block of Robertson in reference to a domestic disturbance involving child custody.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with a 59-year-old female and her son, identified as Keen, who evaded officers and was not being compliant. Keen then approached an OPD officer in an aggressive manner by acting like he was going to strike him with his fist. Keen then pushed the OPD officer in the chest, causing him to fall down in the street and sustain bodily injury on both of his knees.
The officer got up and attempted to handcuff Keen but he resisted arrest. A second OPD officer arrived on scene and assisted the first officer in handcuffing Keen. Based on the facts and circumstances presented during the investigation, Keen was charged and arrested accordingly and transported to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center.
