A Sallisaw, Okla. police officer arrested on allegations of misconduct is scheduled to have an arraignment hearing Wednesday (Oct. 16).

John Weber is facing two felony counts of furnishing alcohol to a person under 21 and a misdemeanor count of furnishing alcohol to a minor, according to court documents.

A Sequoyah County Court Clerk said Weber is scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. in front of Judge Larry Langely Wednesday.

Weber was booked into the Sequoyah County Jail and released on a $10,000 bond.

An agent with the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation began interviewing potential witnesses Sept. 30 after allegations surfaced that Weber had sex with an 18-year-old woman while on duty and gave her alcohol.

A woman filed an incident report with the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s office claiming she had slept with patrol lieutenant John Weber on numerous occasions and that he’d supplied alcohol and beer to both her and another 18-year-old woman.

Weber, who is also president of the local Fraternal Order of Police, was placed on unpaid administrative suspension, according to a source familiar with the case.
