Roberts, 65, of Tulsa, is alleged to have assaulted three Tulsa police officers using his car as a weapon. According to a federal Criminal Complaint initially filed in the case, on March 5, 2022, two Tulsa police officers in separate marked patrol vehicles were transporting an arrestee when they saw Roberts driving erratically.

One officer pulled his patrol vehicle to the side of the road because he believed Roberts was trying to flag him down or get his attention. Instead, Roberts accelerated, closely passed the officer’s vehicle, struck the side mirror, and continued at a high rate of speed toward the second patrol vehicle trying to strike it from behind. The second officer was able to take evasive action to avoid a collision. Roberts then turned around and drove toward the first officer’s parked vehicle and attempted to T-bone the patrol vehicle with the officer inside. The officer was also able to take evasive action and avoid a second collision. Roberts then fled in his car. The officers were unable to follow since they were transporting the arrestee.

In an incident later that day, a man called 911 when Roberts showed up at his residence, argued with him and threatened to ram his vehicle into the man’s residence. The man demanded he leave. A Tulsa Police Officer responded, and as she neared the residence, she saw Roberts approaching in his vehicle at a high rate of speed from behind her. The officer accelerated her patrol vehicle to lessen the impact of a collision. Roberts allegedly struct the officer’s vehicle from behind then drove his vehicle to the driver’s side of the patrol vehicle and continued to ram the vehicle as the officer attempted to drive away. The officer was able to maneuver her vehicle away, but Roberts again accelerated toward the officer and attempted to strike her head on.

During the incident, another officer arrived and parked nearby. He observed Roberts’ continued attempts to strike the first officer’s vehicle. The officer exited his own patrol vehicle and walked to its rear, drawing his firearm. Roberts then allegedly turned his vehicle toward the second officer and accelerated in his direction in an attempt to run over him. The officer fired at Roberts and jumped out of the way to avoid being struck. Roberts drove in a circle around the officer and his vehicle. He finally struck a tree and came to a stop. Roberts was shot during the incident and taken by ambulance to a hospital. The FBI and Tulsa Police Department are the investigative agencies. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gina M. Gilmore is prosecuting the case. 22-CR-95
