According to a press release from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Major County Sheriff Steven Randolph is under arrest.
According to the release, last November, the District 26 District Attorney’s Office requested OSBI agents investigate allegations against the sheriff in relation to a confrontation with his daughter’s boyfriend in May 2017.
The release states that, Randolph pulled his sheriff’s vehicle in front of Carlos Aguilar, reached through the open window of Aguilar’s truck and grabbed Aguilar by the clothes near his neck, and threatened to kill him. Randolph’s wife persuaded him to let go of Aguilar. Randolph then pointed his gun toward the roadway and fired a shot. The investigation culminated today with Randolph’s arrest on three misdemeanor counts including assault and battery, malicious injury to property, and reckless conduct with a firearm.
Agents arrested Randolph 44, at the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office.
He was booked into that county’s jail.
