Comments Off on Former Oklahoma police chief arrested for distributing methamphetamine

The mug shot of 49-year-old Melvin Fisher Jr. paints a vivid picture.

The trouble for the former Valley Brook police chief first came to light in September, 2011.

Valley Brook police chief pleaded guilty to meth possession

He was pulled over for a traffic violation in Sapulpa when investigators say they found cocaine and marijuana in the car.

The state trooper pulled him over because he thought Fisher was driving under the influence.

Right after his arrest, his attorney, Rob Henson, told KRMG, “Mr. Fisher was not under the influence and he was not charged with DUI or DWI.”

In 2011, he was charged with Drug Trafficking, Possession of a Controlled Drug with Intent to Distribute Cocaine, Possession of a Controlled Drug with Intent to Distribute Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

His attorney said Fisher had no knowledge of the drugs in the car.

Henson said, “Mr. Fisher intends to vigorously defend himself against these charges. In fact, he was stunned when he showed up to court and realized the state had charged him with trafficking and unlawful possession with intent to distribute.”

Fisher was fired from the Valley Brook Police Department in May.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections recently released a new photo of Fisher, which shows his dramatic change in appearance from his mug shot last year.

Arrest papers show Fisher was charged with several counts of Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Drug with Intent to Distribute in Creek County.

He was given a 10-year suspended sentence.
