(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Cushing man, who pleaded guilty Friday to punching a Cushing police officer in the face, has been ordered to have a substance abuse evaluation, follow any treatment recommendations, undergo random drug tests, maintain full-time employment and pay $2,588 in assessments as conditions of probation.

Because Kyle Eugene Stone, 33, was given a five-year deferred sentence except 50 days in jail, he will not have a criminal record of assault and battery on a police officer if he successfully completes the terms of his probation.

Stone was arrested at his apartment complex on Aug. 7 at 12:33 am, about 30 minutes after Cushing Police Officer Cody Carpenter was sent to an apartment where a crying woman said Stone “was destroying items and had assaulted her,” an affidavit said.

Stone “stumbled out of the apartment and stood on the walkway. I told Stone to go over to the next apartment so I could speak,” with the woman, the Cushing officer wrote in his affidavit.

“Stone screamed, ‘No, f… you’ at me. I instructed Stone to put his hands behind his back so I could detain him in handcuffs. I reached for his left wrist. At this time, Stone pulled away from me and struck me in the chin area with his left closed fist.

“Officer Wright tackled Stone to the ground after I had been struck…I gave the commands for Stone to give me his hands as they were tucked underneath him…During the altercation, Stone was screaming and making statements, but I could not understand what he was saying,” the Cushing officer wrote in his affidavit.

“I delivered a few strikes to Stone’s right side in an attempt to gain compliance. I told Stone if he did not give me his hands, he would be tased. I told Stone approximately two or three times that if he did not give up his hands, he would be tased. Stone continued to resist commands,” and at 12:12 am was tased on his back right side, the Cushing officer wrote in his affidavit.

“Officer Wright was able to gain control of his left hand and place it in handcuffs,” after which Stone was told he would be tased again if he did not up his right hand, which he did, the affidavit said.

“At this time, Sgt. Piatt arrived on scene to assist with placing Stone in handcuffs,” the affidavit said.

A woman told police, “Stone threw a boot at her head and was destroying items around her apartment,” which had overturned furniture and a broken television in the entryway, the affidavit said.

The woman “stated she did not wish to press charges against Stone for domestic assault,” but was given information about Wings of Hope since she said she wanted to obtain a protective order against Stone, the affidavit said.

In court Friday, Stone also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of shoplifting a pair of jeans, socket set and boots from Atwood’s in Cushing on July 23, 2019, for which he was given a concurrent six-month deferred sentence.
