Man jailed in standoff released

TAHLEQUAH — A Hulbert man accused of having an hours-long standoff with authorities after shooting at vehicles and trying to burn a home in February has been released from jail as part of a plea agreement.

Michael Wyatt Earp, 42, was charged with fourth-degree arson and reckless conduct with a firearm.

Earp pleaded guilty and received a five-year deferred sentence. He was also ordered to serve 60 days in jail with credit for the time he’d already served.

Court records show Earp was ordered to have an assessment with mental-health court or be supervised by the District Attorney’s Office. A review is scheduled for May 28 in front of Special District Judge Holli Wells.

Earp’s charges could be expunged on April 22, 2019, court records show.
