Collin Garrett Hayden (white supremacist stripper) Biography – Collin Garrett Hayden Wiki
Collin Garrett Hayden was found guilty of the obstruction charge in March. He pleaded guilty to the weapons charge before the trial began. The jury acquitted him of drug and gun charges.
Hayden came to law enforcement’s attention in 2016 during an investigation into drug trafficking from Dallas into East Texas. Hayden and his roommate, Timothy Franklin Harper, were caught in a recording offering to sell drugs to another person. The investigation also revealed the pair sold cocaine at Dallas strip clubs where they performed, News4SA reported.
According to court information, Hayden, who has a white supremacist tattoo, threatened to kill Harper when she found out about the investigation and later announced the plot to kill Harper by the white supremacist prison gang. He also formed a shaft from a bolt while in Titus County Prison and threatened to kill the guards who had entered his cell. The threats were retaliation for a guard who reported an attempt to bribe a cell phone. Hayden was charged in April 2017.
US District Judge Robert Schroeder III sentenced Hayden to a simultaneous withdrawal, 200 months for witness tampering and 60 months for fugitive possession in prison.
News4SA said Harper reached a plea agreement with prosecutors in 2018 and accepted more than 15 years in prison for a drug conspiracy charge. According to the news of the Texarkana Newspaper, many other joint defense defendants admitted their guilt and were convicted. Daniel Enrique Montes-Munoz, sentenced to 97 months in January for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine; Jason Wayne McLemore sentenced to 151 months in 2018 for conspiracy to dispense methamphetamine; and Gerald Clinton Davis was sentenced to 120 months in prison for the same crime in 2018.
Police began investigating Hayden and his roommate, Timothy Franklin Harper, in 2016 for allegedly selling cocaine and methamphetamine in Shreveport, Louisiana, and at Dallas strip clubs where they performed, according to court records and a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Texas.
Officers recorded the pair offering to sell someone drugs, the prosecutors said, and when Hayden later learned about the charges against him he devised a plan to have his prison gang kill Harper.
Hayden has a forearm tattoo associated with white supremacist groups, according to the Texarkana Gazette.
While in jail, Hayden also threatened to kill any guards that came into his cell with a shank, after a guard reported him for trying to bribe somebody to give him a cellphone, prosecutors said.
Hayden’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.
In 2018, Harper was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison on a drug conspiracy charge after reaching a plea agreement with prosecutors..
