CHICKASHA —

Hobbs said he was eventually able to subdue Parks. 

Hobbs said while transporting Parks to the Grady County Jail, he made numerous threats toward Hobbs. An incident report details Parks said "I'm going to cut your f*****g head off and feed it to the coyotes," and If you love your family, you better get life insurance." 

Hobbs said Parks also spit on the cage area of his patrol vehicle resulting in the placement of a spit hood over Parks' head. 

CPD Chief Eddie Adamson said he does not believe the homeless Parks is perpetrating these crimes in order to have a place to stay at night. 

"This is a man with serious violent tendencies and hopefully he will be locked up for awhile after this latest incident," Adamson said. "All we can do is arrest him as he continues to commit criminal acts."

Adamson said he believes Parks recently came to Chickasha. Parks said he was staying with a friend in town, according to Adamson, but police have been unable to locate the friend. 

"We doubt there is anyone," Adamson said. 

Parks was booked into the Grady County Jail for assault and battery on an officer, threatening to perform violent acts, resisting arrest and public intoxication.
