Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton said 'a hoodlum mentality' won't go unpunished in his county.

"They did wrong in the wrong county," Walton said. 

Rogers County Deputies arrested Danyel McQuillen Thursday after they said she dragged a deputy during a traffic stop last week. They also arrested three women accused of helping McQuillen hide for a week. Those women are AmeIia Ridenour, Michele Ridenour and Sharon Sheets.

"We got a mob of female thugs here," Sheriff Walton said. 

Sheriff Walton believes McQuillen ran from the traffic stop last week because she had a warrant out for her arrest. They said during the stop, she refused to roll down her window, revved her engine and the deputy was able to open a passenger door and tase her but she still sped away, dragging the deputy. 

"She didn't care about him, his livelihood, his ability to walk or anything else," said Sheriff Walton. "She cared about not going to jail."

He said it took a lot of hours and following up on leads, but with the help of the public, they managed to track down McQuillen and those helping her. 

"A lot of miles driven, a lot of sleep lost," said Sheriff Walton. "Our people worked together flawlessly."

Sheriff Walton had a message for the four suspects. 

"When you get out of the penitentiary all you got to remember is drive around Rogers County," said Sheriff Walton. "Don't come through it for any reason."

The deputy is back at work now.
