ANADARKO — Threats of violence with a knife regarding a dented truck door is what, police said, landed a Carnegie man behind bars.
Ronnie Vaughn Manley, 59, made his initial appearance Monday in Caddo County District Court where he received a felony charge of assault, battery, or assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, as well as a misdemeanor count of threatening to perform an act of violence, records indicate. The felony is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
Carnegie Police Officer Frank Martin stated he received the report shortly before 10:30 a.m. Nov. 13 from a man who said Manley had threatened him with a knife.
The man said he was washing his pickup when Manley pulled up and yelled at him before he got out of his truck and pulled out a knife, the probable cause affidavit. The man said Manley threatened to “take (man) out” over a dent in his truck’s door, according to Martin.
Held on $10,000 bond, Manley has requested representation by Oklahoma Indigent Defense System. He returns to court at 9 a.m. Jan. 15, 2024, for his preliminary hearing conference, records indicate.
