A Tahlequah man was arrested on several charges early Thursday morning following an assault.
Brentley Adam Rose, 27, was arrested by Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies for domestic assault in the presence of a minor, interfering with a 911 call, resisting arrest, larceny, vandalism, outstanding warrants, and public intoxication.
Deputies said Rose’s girlfriend called police after Rose arrived at home “highly intoxicated” and yelling. The two argued and the female victim began to call 911, but Rose allegedly knocked the phone out of her hand and hit her in the neck.
When deputies arrived, Rose reportedly took the victim’s phone and fled because he had outstanding warrants.
He returned to the home at around 2:45 a.m., after deputies had left, and allegedly assaulted the woman again.
The victim told deputies she began placing her 2-year-old child into a vehicle to leave when Rose started moving toward her, so she got into the car and began to back up. Rose allegedly jumped onto the hood of the car and started beating on the windshield until it broke.
Deputies were able to find Rose and arrest him.
Court documents show Rose has previous charges in Cherokee County of obstructing an officer, resisting an officer, public intoxication, attempted second-degree burglary, and malicious injury to property. Some of those charges were dismissed when a witness failed to appear in court, records show.
