Amy McTeer, a Nichols Hills attorney, was removed from a Logan County courtroom during her formal arraignment on Wednesday morning for talking too much.
McTeer, 40, was being arraigned on three charges (methamphetamine possession, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and public intoxication) following her arrest early Monday morning at a Guthrie convenient store.

McTeer turned argumentative and interrupted the judge and the prosecutor throughout her court appearance.
She was removed with no resistance.
A court officer told The Oklahoman, “She wouldn’t stop talking. She was obviously agitated and she was talking over everyone else.”
The District Attorney’s office requested a $50,000 bond feeling she could be a “flight risk”. However, Special Judge R.L. Hert Jr. set the bond at $10,000 for the felony count and $1,000 each for the two misdemeanor counts. McTeer is now facing four criminal cases in three counties with prior arrests.
McTeer posted bond around 11 am on Wednesday and continued to talk about her arrest and charges to the court officer outside the courtroom, but remained calm while posting her bond.
