TEXARKANA, Texas (KETK) – A Dallas man has been sentenced to more than 16 years in federal prison for obstruction of justice.

Collin Garrett Hayden, 28, was convicted on March 6 by a federal jury.

He pleaded guilty to possessing a weapon in jail before the trial began.

According to information presented in court, in 2016, law enforcement began an investigation into methamphetamine trafficking from Dallas into East Texas.

During the investigation, police intercepted Hayden and his roommate on an undercover recording offering to sell drugs to another individual. Further investigation revealed Hayden sold cocaine in the Dallas strip clubs in which he performed, and additionally sold methamphetamine to a Shreveport, Louisiana buyer.

When Hayden learned of his pending federal charges, he turned on his roommate and threatened to use his association with a white supremacist group to have the roommate killed.

While in custody at the Titus County jail, Hayden obtained a shank-type weapon and threatened to kill any guards who entered his cell, all in retaliation for a guard reporting Hayden for attempting to illegally obtain a cell phone by bribe.

Hayden was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 19, 2017, and charged with federal violations.
