A8 - THE PERKINS JOURNAL, Thursday, June 30, 2011 Back Page Ex-con arrested in Cushing charged with punching county jailer By Patti Weaver Journal Correspondent An ex-convict with a long criminal record -- who was arrested at a Cushing motel -- was arraigned Friday on a charge of punching a Payne County jailer after appearing in court on a drug charge. Terry Wayne Badgewell, 45, of Dewar, who is cur- rntly on probation for anslaughter, aggravated asault and battery, and assault and battery on a police officer, was given a court-appointed attorney Friday. If convicted of assault and battery on a Payne County jailer on June 20, BadgeweU -- who is being held on $100,000 bail and also for Oklahoma County authorfies -- could be given a life prison term, court records show. Payne County Jail Administrator Captain Reese Lane told the Jour- nal Monday that his staff had just taken Badgewell to court to have his bail set on his drug charge follow- ing his arrest in Cushing, when the incident occurred last week. "He just blindsided my officer. We had plenty of help. He was quickly restrained," following the June 20 incident that hap- pened as Badgewell was passing through a door after Members of Class I visited the Cushing Community Center. Standing and listening about the arts center are (left to right): Cindy White, Chris Day, Jim Perry, Frank Robinson, Rick Miller. Seated are Kay Exton and Angela Hinkle.

A strong emphasis is also placed on "making connections" with individuals from all com- munities in our county. Over the course of the eight-month program, Class 2 participants will visit each of the six com- munities in Payne County at least once. One of our goals is to surprise the include touring a petro- leum storage tank farm in Cushing, meeting a pair of young entrepreneurs (ages 11 and 13) from Glencoe, viewing eagles at the Iowa Tribe's eagle sanctuary in Perkins, and touring the Food and Ag Products Center at OSU. PCC Class 2 will meet on the second Wednesday of the month from 12pm to 5pm, September 2011 through April 2012. An additional orientation session will take place on the first Wednesday of September, which is Sep- tember 7. Lunch will be provided at each session. Tuition for the program is $150 per person, although a few scholarships will be available.
