My colleague Matt Dinger wrote a detailed story on the arrest that followed the golf club v. machete attack. It went down after a man heard a crash and saw a man wearing a painter’s respirator mask puncturing the tires and smashing glass of his neighbor’s pickup. He grabbed a golf club and tried to stop the man messing with the pickup. That didn’t go well. ‘Cause the pickup attacker in the painter’s mask grabbed a machete, which trumps golf club.
Here’s what Matt came up with.
After the Halloween attack, Michael Rogers, 31, later identified as the machete-wielder, posted a confessional video defending himself in the whole shabang on You Tube, which was picked up by local TV stations like KFOR before being erased from You Tube. The 31-year-old was booked into Oklahoma County jail on a complaint of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
If you watch it, the rambling account of girlfriend troubles, politics and various other complaints about “the system” is laced with profanity.
