Phone calls from the Broken Arrow Jail reveal the moments following the DUI arrest of State Rep. Dean Davis.
Davis calls a friend, two fellow state representatives, and Tulsa County Sheriff Vic Regalado. Davis tells State Rep. TJ Marti that he was in jail, but a former student working there was allowing him to make phone calls and asked him to make calls to help him, according to the recording.
Davis, who represents Broken Arrow, told Marti: "This is not going to help Broken Arrow at all because they just made an enemy, that's not good at all, you know that."
Rep. Marti says Davis is a good friend of his, and he was helping his friend during a difficult time. He said though they are both state representatives, Dean called him as a friend, not as a colleague.
In a phone call to Rep. Ross Ford, Ford reminds him he's being recorded. Davis replies- "This is recorded, I don't care. No I don't, it's the truth, im telling you the truth."
He also makes three unanswered phone calls to Tulsa County Sheriff Vic Regalado. He leaves Regalado a voicemail saying he's been arrested and heading to his establishment. A statement from Regelado says even if he had answered the phone, he would not have helped him circumvent the criminal justice process.
In all of his phone calls, Davis says the police didn't give him a blood test.
Broken Arrow did not comment on the arrest.
Davis's attorney tells FOX23 his client is innocent, and the phone calls show his frustration with being denied a chance to prove it to police.
