The alleged victim reportedly said Perez didn’t want to go inside because one of his ears was hurting. The woman told officer Doyle that when she started to grab a couple of things out of the car, Perez came out of the car from the back passenger seat, pushed her into the car and hit her. The woman had visible bruising on her face, the officer noted in a case affidavit. The officer added, however, that the alleged victim did not think Perez hit her in the head, but could not be sure.

The truck then ran up on the curb a second time and officer Okerson initiated a traffic stop. The pickup stopped in a business parking lot and the driver, later identified as David Wayne Holcomb, reportedly began to exit, “stumbling and having obvious difficulty standing and walking without assistance.” Officer Okerson noted that she immediately smelled an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from Holcomb’s breath and person. When asked if he had been drinking, Holcomb reportedly said he’d had three beers a couple of hours earlier. Asked for his driver’s license, Holcomb reportedly said he did not have a valid license. Officer Okerson said in her case affidavit that Holcomb’s speech was slurred and he said things during their conversation that made no sense. When the officer searched Holcomb, she reportedly found a small, metal smoking device that contained residue and ashes from what she determined to be marijuana. Officer Okerson said she asked Holcomb if he had smoked marijuana. He reportedly answered that he had smoked some a few hours earlier, and Holcomb added that he had a medical marijuana license, which the officer located in his wallet. Officer Okerson told Holcomb that he could not smoke marijuana and then drive a vehicle, to which he reportedly replied, “I knew that.” In a hearing Dec. 18 in Osage County District Court, the court entered a not guilty plea for Holcomb and set his bail at $4,000.
Unwanted guest at Ponca City casino
NAME: Ryan Travis O’Hara
RESIDENCE: Ponca City
CHARGES: Unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute; assault and battery on a police officer; obstructing an officer; assault and battery; and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia

Deputy Minson noted in his case affidavit that he was aware there were also “multiple Kay County warrants” out for O’Hara. Minson arrived at the casino in Ponca City, approached O’Hara and asked him if he had his ID. O’Hara reportedly said, “no.” Minson identified himself as an Osage County deputy and asked again, “Ryan, do you have your ID on you?” O’Hara reportedly said, “My name’s Shawn.” Minson said in his affidavit that he told O’Hara he recognized him and was going to detain him while confirming his identity with the Kay County Sheriff’s Office. Minson asked O’Hara to turn around and place his hands behind his back. O’Hara reportedly tried to flee by pushing past Deputy Minson and casino security and going toward the front door. Minson told O’Hara to stop, but the suspect reportedly tried again to get away. Minson then told O’Hara that he was under arrest for obstruction. O’Hara reportedly tried to get away and run, but the deputy took him to the ground. Once he was on the ground, O’Hara reportedly continued to resist. Once Minson got O’Hara into handcuffs, the deputy did a pat-down search on the suspect and found a wallet containing a driver’s license bearing the name Ryan Travis O’Hara. At this point, the suspect reportedly began to yell and scream, “I don’t consent” over and over again. Minson continued with the search and found a camera bag on the suspect’s right hip. Deputy Minson asked O’Hara what that was and the suspect reportedly said,”I don’t know, it’s not mine.” As the deputy attempted to check the camera bag, O’Hara reportedly began to scream and kick at Minson. In the moments that followed, there was conflict that reportedly involved O’Hara forcefully kicking both Deputy Minson and a casino security officer. Minson reportedly used a Taser on O’Hara. When Minson eventually searched the camera bag, he reportedly found digital scales and three baggies containing a white, crystal-like substance that appeared to be packaged for distribution. O’Hara reportedly denied ownership of the bag. In a hearing Dec. 18 in Osage County District Court, the court entered a not guilty plea for O’Hara and set his bail at $15,000.
