Two felony counts and a misdemeanor are requested against a Miami. Okla. man wanted on hundreds of thousands of dollars in warrants after his arrest by Neosho police in Walmart Sunday, the eventual arrest captured on film by an area citizen.
Counts of felony resisting arrest and assault on a law enforcement officer, and a count of stealing against Jesse Bowden, 38,  are pending review of the Newton County Prosecutor's Office after officers responded to the 3200 Lusk Drive store at 4:27 p.m.

"I just heard him say that you'd have to kill him before he would get on the ground peacefully," Jennifer Ishcomer recounted the moment as she readied her camera to get a shot as officer Alfonso Malagon took down Bowden as he ran from police. "I didn't want to aggravate the situation because I don't want to make it any more dangerous for the police than it already is so I took the picture and ran, basically."

Bowden had been stopped by four Walmart loss prevention personnel for investigation of shoplifting and Chief David Kennedy said he was taken to a small room to await the arrival of police.

"Once he gets identification of the suspect the suspect then takes off running through the store," Kennedy related. "Officers got to him, got him subdued, got him handcuffed."

Kennedy explained Bowden' resistance to being arrested, as he has outstanding warrants for five counts of unlawful possession of pseudo-ephedrine with bonds totaling "$300,000, and Kennedy said he also has Oklahoma warrants for unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, manufacture of a controlled substance, two bench warrants, and a warrant for bail jumping.

Walmart figured into two other stealing reports by police over the weekend. David Dowell, 37 of Neosho, was charged with stealing an undetermined amount of merchandise when police were dispatched at 2:20 p.m. Sunday; and Kennedy said the investigation continues in the loss of $289 in merchandise reported at 12:24 p.m. Friday.

Major Minors With Alcohol:
Twelve - mostly teens - were issued citations for minor in possession of alcohol Saturday night and early Sunday near the shuttered Premiere Turbines plant.

"Officers were checking on suspicious activity" Kennedy explained first of the 8:06 p.m. response by police to the 3500 block of Doniphan Drive Saturday.

Shelby Adamson Hughes, 18 of Neosho, was also charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia after being caught with some marijuana and a pipe when an officer searched the area behind Premiere Turbines; while Kennedy said Gage Lough, Welton, 18, and Samuel George Woitowyz, 17, both of Neosho, were each cited for MIP.

An officer then responded at 1 a.m. Sunday across the road from Premiere Turbines where Kennedy said nine people found behind a machine shop were cited for MIP. They are Victoria Marie Coulter, 18 of Colcord, Okla.; Lance Harville-Thomas, 18 of Maumelle, Ark.; Daryan Noelle Torix, 18 of Mena, Ark.; Seth Marshall Fraley, 19 of Sedalia; Maite Luiza Bradford, 18 of Oklahoma City, Okla.; Madelyn Grace Massanelli, 18 of Rogers, Ark.; Sawvter Keeton Michelle Salisbury, 19 of Collinsville, Okla.; Kadesha Mo'na Cooper, 20 of Prattssville, Ark.; and Alissa Lee Rowden, 19 of Strafford.

Thefts:
Police are investigating the theft of $40 in coins from the 500 block of West Brook Street, reported at 8:04 p.m. Saturday.

Nothing was reported missing but police are looking into a burglary at a Morse Park concession stand where Kennedy said it was determined unlawful entry was made after an officer responded at 2:12 p.m. Saturday.

The loss is $251 in appliances in a stealing from vehicle incident reported at 7:42 p.m. Friday in the 1100 block of West Daugherty Road
