He said that he had also stayed at 400 block Northwest Dearborn Avenue for two to four days.

Patrick was placed under arrest for failing to comply with the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registration Act due to him not registering with the Lawton Police Department, living within 2000 feet of a public school, and living within 2000 feet of a public park. He was booked into the Lawton City Jail without incident.
