The Pioneer Woman’s Felonious First Cousin – An Update

UPDATE:  “Mary in Tulsa” emailed that Judge Gambill granted the parties’ Agreed Motion for Continuance.  The pre-trial conference is now set for Dec. 13, 2013.  Gentner’s wife, Wendy Drummond, appeared with the Pioneer Woman’s wayward cousin by marriage.


Almost a month ago, “Mary in Tulsa” updated us on the Thatcher Drummond assault case which, nearly two years after the incident, remains pending before an Osage County court mired in legal posturing and maneuvering by the Drummond family lawyer.   Regular visitors to this site will recall the Pioneer Woman’s law-abiding first cousin by marriage was arrested in February 2012,  after allegedly taking a swing at Robert Regnier, the state trooper who stopped him for running a stop sign, drunk driving, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. While attempting to handcuff Ree’s upstanding relative, a scuffle broke out, the trooper was injured and Drummond escaped after bolting over a pasture, handcuffs still dangling. Presumably Thatcher ran off to the fake Pioneer Woman’s lodge/tv studio hoping to satisfy a severe case of munchies.

After the case sat dormant for nearly a year, a pre-trial hearing was held on Sept. 13, 2013. Gentner Drummond, Thatcher’s cousin and the family barrister, appeared and moved to depose the trooper. Typically, law officers do not give depositions as it is presumed they will be available to testify live and in person at the time of trial. Exceptions are made when a deponent is terminally ill, has a profound mental disease or might be moving a great distance. None of these exceptions apply to Regnier who is alive, healthy and has no imminent plans to relocate. The Assistant District Attorney, Mike Fisher understandably objected.

The presiding Judge granted Drummond’s motion but limited the scope of discovery from the time the officer first saw the defendant to the moment when Thatcher broke the law. Genter Drummond, who’s on his knees nightly praying this case gets dismissed for want of prosecution, objected. He’ll eventually move that his client’s constitutional rights have been unduly prejudiced by the many delays. Good strategy Gentner, get the family bad boy off again. Yet another hearing was set for this Friday, November 22, 2013 with Judge Gambill ordering said deposition be completed by this date.

Quoting Judge Gambill, “the easiest thing for the court to do would be to just shuffle it off, but I’m not going to do that for rich or for poor.” Let’s hope the dear Judge won’t be retiring anytime soon.   A heartfelt thanks to “Mary in Tulsa.”  Please update us on Friday’s proceedings.
