Woman’s shooting claim a hallucination

TAHLEQUAH — jnewton@tahlequahdailypress.com

A woman who called dispatchers and claimed she had shot and killed a home intruder Sunday was “hallucinating” and under the influence of synthetic marijuana, deputies say.

Kyra Rachelle Smallen, 24, of Tahlequah, allegedly called sheriff’s dispatchers saying she had shot an intruder. Deputies said Smallen called a second time, when authorities were en route to her location, claiming a person had pulled a gun on her and was pointing it at her.

In a third call to authorities, a man told dispatchers he didn’t know why the woman had called, and said everything was OK.

Smallen was standing in the driveway when deputies arrived, and initially told them her name was Teresa. She had slurred speech and blood-shot, glassy eyes, according to Sheriff’s Sgt. Tom Moore.

Smallen also had a green tint on her tongue, and admitted she had smoked incense and Roxicodone – also known as oxycodone hydrochloride – Moore said. Deputies said Smallen appeared to be hallucinating, and provided them with four different stories as to why she called dispatchers.

Deputies later found two metal smoking pipes that Smallen allegedly admitted to owning.

She was taken to jail and booked for public intoxication of drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, and obstruction.
