Stephens County man faces assault charge

A 46-year-old Duncan man with a prior record for alcohol-related crime is in jail for an alleged drunken assault Tuesday night on his girlfriend and friends and for obstructing a police officer.

A probable cause affidavit for the arrest of William Elzie Fleetwood was issued Wednesday in Stephens County District charging him with a felony count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, as well as misdemeanor counts for domestic abuse, two counts of assault and battery and a count of obstructing a police officer, court records indicate. He faces up to 10 years in prison for the felony count.

Fleetwood's prior felony conviction record was also entered. He has prior convictions in Garfield County in July 1997 and April 2007 for driving under the influence, and in Oklahoma Couty for driving under the influence in January 2008 and eluding a police officer in February 2008, records show.

Duncan police arrested Fleetwood Tuesday night shortly before 8 p.m. after receiving a domestic assault with a knife call, the affidavit states. Police Officer Josh Branch said he was called to 105 E. Cedar and found Fleetwood standing in the doorway and refusing to comply with orders. Police were told he had a knife and Fleetwood was Tasered and he was taken into custody. A red-handled kitchen knife was found on the ground next to him.
