Woman files assault report with CCSO

TAHLEQUAH — A Tahlequah woman filed an assault report with sheriff’s deputies on Thursday in connection to an incident that resulted in a head wound requiring nine stitches.

Malana Castillo told deputies her 13-year-old child picked up a large glass candle holder and struck her in the back of the head during an argument. Castillo informed deputies that others present during the altercation did not intervene, and noted the recent argument as the fourth such event shared with the child.

Ernest Dale Billups, 40, of Hulbert, was arrested on June 6 for domestic violence in the presence of a minor, vandalism and threatening acts of violence. Billups was reported to have dragged the victim, who informed deputies Billups became angry when the victim received a beer purchased by another man at a bar near Fort Gibson dam, through two rooms in the residence, before reaching the home’s front yard. Billups was reported to have threatened the victim’s life during the altercation while an 8-inch knife hidden in the crack of his buttocks was discovered on the suspect after his request for a bathroom visit.
