  (Stillwater, Okla.)  — The driver of a flatbed pickup truck, who had been kicked out of the Blue Diamond Cabaret east of Stillwater along with his passenger, has admitted to returning and firing multiple rounds from a pistol in the direction of the club, while three or four people were standing outside at about 1 am on Feb. 2.
    “No person at the club was struck by the gunfire,” Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Zach Wheeler wrote in an affidavit.
    About two hours later, Cristian U. Garcia Angeles, 28, of Duncan, was found unconscious in the driver’s seat of a truck that had crashed in a ditch at 19th and Fairgrounds Road in rural Stillwater, the affidavit said.
    For the drive-by shooting, Garcia Angles was placed on five years’ probation last week with an order to have a substance abuse evaluation, take any recommended follow-up treatment, undergo random drug tests, show proof of employment or exemption, perform 50 hours of community service, and pay a $500 fine along with a $960 prosecution fee.
    For his admitted drunk driving, Garcia Angeles was given a concurrent one year of probation with requirements including attending a victim impact panel and paying a $200 fine.
    His passenger, Jorge M. Delarosa, 24, of Duncan, was given a 20-day jail term, $100 fine and court costs for public intoxication.
    A black pistol had been found on the ground by the truck, which was identified as a Springfield Armory XD-40 semi-automatic that had no rounds in the chamber or magazine, the affidavit said. “As I opened the driver-side door, I observed a copper-colored shell casing in the weather stripping of the bottom of the door panel,” the deputy wrote in his affidavit.
    The manager said that the two men “came into the club very intoxicated and started to cause a minor disturbance,” the affidavit said. The manager said he “kicked the two men out of the club shortly before 1 am,” the affidavit said.
    The manager said, “both men returned a few minutes later and drove through the parking lot, yelling out the windows…this is when the driver pointed a handgun out of the window and fired a pistol approximately 4-5 times in the direction of the club and approximately 3-4 people standing outside,” the affidavit said. The manager said he found no immediate damage to the building or vehicles, the affidavit said.
    Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Colby Martens, who arrived at 4 am, said that Garcia Angeles “admitted to being the one who shot the pistol in the direction of the club,” the affidavit said. Garcia Angeles said he and his passenger were headed to their house from the Blue Diamond and crashed in the ditch, the affidavit said.
