Frederick police officer reassigned after arrest

FREDERICK Okla_ An off-duty police officer in Frederick has been reassigned after being arrested on New Year's Day.

Police arrested fellow officer Justin Hicks in the early morning hours of New Year's Day after he was accused of becoming violent and dismantling a hospital room. A Tillman County Court affidavit stated Hicks had been drinking too much alcohol and was bleeding from the head. It stated Frederick Memorial Hospital staff called police about 1:00 am on News Year's Day, because Hicks was yelling and cursing in the ER, and he became violent when told to leave the ER. Documents show he was there to check on his cousin who was being treated for a fight he'd been in.

Police arrested Hicks and took him to the county jail. The district attorney says Hicks is due back in court January 26th. He's charged with malicious injury and disturbing the peace.

Frederick Police Department Chief Rick Guill said since Hicks did not physically hurt anyone, he has not been suspended, but they have reassigned him.

He served as Frederick Schools Resource Officer but will now be returning to basic patrol.
