Troubled Judge Facing 8 Felony Gun Charges Indicted Again After Alleged Drive-by Shooting at Brother-In-Law’s House

. . .A sitting Oklahoma judge already facing multiple felony gun charges in Texas has now been indicted for allegedly riddling his brother-in-law’s home with bullets in a drive-by shooting in his home state, authorities said.

Garfield County Associate Judge Brian Lovell, 59, was charged with fresh felony counts of discharging of a firearm into a dwelling and use of a vehicle to facilitate the discharge of a firearm last week in connection with the Feb. 12, 2023 gunplay in the town of Bison, Okla., the Enid News & Eagle reported.

Two days after the alleged shooting outside brother-in-law Kenneth Markes’ home, Lovell claimed that the gun had been stolen from his vehicle, Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond said in a press release this week. . .

The controversial jurist also faces eight felony counts in Texas for allegedly using the same Glock 23 .40-caliber gun in a similar incident in Austin on Sept. 11 of last year.

In that case, Lovell is accused of driving near Matamoros and Santa Maria streets in his white SUV, during which he allegedly “discharged a firearm approximately five times,” the Eagle said.
