Tulsa Officer Gave 'Take Out' Order for Inmate

August 11, 2011  | 

A Tulsa County (Okla.) Sheriff's sergeant testified Wednesday that a Tulsa Police officer gave an order to an inmate to "take out" another inmate.

Sgt. Carla Housely said she wrote out a statement by inmate Durrell Collins, who claimed that Tulsa Police Officer Bill Yelton asked him to beat up another inmate in the Tulsa Jail, reports the Tulsa World.

The information was presented during the prosecution's eighth day of testimony in the police corruption trial of Yelton, 50, and fellow Tulsa Police Officer Jeff Henderson, 38.

Officer Yelton believed Collins was talking to federal authorities about a grand jury investigation, Sgt. Housely testified.
