A news article from KFOR reported in September of 2015:

Defense Attorney Mark Henricksen filed a notice, on behalf of his client, Richard Glossip, alleging Oklahoma county district attorney David Prater bullied and intimidated defense witnesses. Glossip’s attorneys said Michael Scott, a former cellmate of Sneed, who “overheard Justin Sneed laughing about framing Mr. Glossip … felt intimidated and coerced.”

Scott was issued an arrest warrant on Tuesday for an unpaid $200 fine and not completing community service. Scott was then arrested in Roger’s County by “police officers with their service weapons drawn and pointed at him.”

Documents show, while still in handcuffs, Scott “was placed in a chair in the interrogation room” and, moments later, “David Prater and an investigator with the last name of Eastbrook, then, entered the room and began interrogating Mr. Scott.”

Documents show they allegedly asked Scott about an affidavit he signed regarding Glossip’s case. According to documents, Prater specifically told Scott he ordered the arrest warrant “so that Scott would be forced to talk with Prater and his investigator.”
