DUNCAN — A Lawton man is free on $25,000 bond after being accused of headbutting and beating his father-in-law bad enough to cause multiple face fractures.
Brendon Jackson, 30, made his initial appearance Thursday in Stephens County District Court where he received a felony charge of aggravated assault and battery, records indicate.
Stephens County Sheriff’s Deputy Rylan Brammer stated he was responding to a Tuesday afternoon call to a home outside Marlow and spoke with a woman who said her husband had been hurt. The deputy saw blood on the floor leading into the house followed by a large pool in the hallway. He found a man with a swollen right eye that was bruised around it with blood running down his cheek, the probable cause affidavit states. He also had blood on his left hand and cuts.
The man said he and his son-in-law, Jackson, got into an argument about the way Jackson was talking to the man’s daughter. He said during the argument, Jackson had gotten into his face and headbutted him before punching him repeatedly in the face, the affidavit states. Once he fell to the ground, he said, Jackson got on top of him and continued punching his face until another man pulled him off. The man said he never hit Jackson.
Jackson said the man had gotten in his face while arguing and bumped him with his chest, Brammer stated. That’s when Jackson said he headbutted the man and started punching him, according to the affidavit. He told the deputy, “I’m tired of (the man) feeling like he can push me around.”
The man was taken to the hospital, where a CT scan showed multiple fractures to his face. He was flown to OU Trauma Center in Oklahoma City for potential neurosurgical and trauma care, the affidavit states.
Free on his bond with the condition he have no contact with the witnesses, Jackson returns to court at 9 a.m. Jan. 3, 2024, for his preliminary hearing conference, records indicate.
