An area man was arrested Wednesday by sheriff's deputies after allegedly physically assaulting his mother.

David William Johnson Jr., 27, was being detained by Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Commission Ranger Randy Jordan when Sheriff's Deputy Justin Coons arrived at Debra Darnell's home. Darnell told Coons her son was being loud and playing his music loud. She told him he needed to leave and he ran at her and assaulted her.

In an unrelated matter, Howard Scantlin said Wednesday someone took a television, red tool box, gas heater and a socket set from the back of his truck.

Brian Mayfield called deputies Tuesday to report the theft of a flat-screen television.
