A Muldrow woman was arrested and her pit bull shot by a police officer after the officer was attacked by both the woman and the dog.
The dog, woman and officer all survived the incident
Muldrow Police Chief George Lawson said police received a call about a domestic argument between a man and woman at 505 Will Morgan Rd. in Muldrow on Tuesday evening.
When sent to investigate, Officer Brad Roberts was getting out of his car when two pit bull dogs came from the house and ran to attack Roberts.
Lawson said it is unclear if the dogs were turned loose or escaped from the house through unsecured doors. The owners were cited recently for allowing the dogs to run loose, he added.
Lawson said, “You can see from the video in the officer’s car that this dog was in full-blown attack mode.”
Roberts shot the dog in self-defense. It survived and both dogs ran off. They returned home the next day, police were told by the owner, Stephanie Oldham, 38.
But Oldham appeared angered and hit Roberts in the chest, Lawson said.
“She was upset and gave him a hard backhand in the chest and was telling him what for,” Lawson said. “The officer decided that’s enough and arrested her.”
In the meantime he had called for assistance and other officers realized they had a search warrant for that residence, Lawson said.
Robert Allen had obtained a search warrant for a clandestine lab earlier in the day. The officers went to assist Roberts and served the warrant at the same time.
“They found several items consistent with the manufacture of methamphetamines and found paraphernalia,” Lawson said.
Oldham was booked into the Sequoyah County Jail on two counts of endeavoring to manufacture, unlawful possession of paraphernalia, and assault on a police officer. Her bond was set at $30,000 and she was released Tuesday.
Lawson said the original call for a domestic turned out to be between Oldham and her brother. An arrest warrant was requested for the brother’s arrest on Thursday.
