Krebs family dispute leads to multiple charges

McALESTER — A Krebs man was charged Monday with two felonies, assault with a dangerous weapon and assault with a deadly weapon, and misdemeanor malicious injury to property for his alleged role in a confrontation with his parents.

On Saturday, Krebs police were called to a residence where they allegedly found Michael Beshear, 29, carrying a BB gun. According to an affidavit written by Krebs Police Officer Kyle Sharp, the two responding officers, Sharp and Krebs officer Mike House, pulled their firearms, not knowing what type of gun Beshear had.

Allegedly, Beshear was walking away from the officers while holding the weapon and eventually threw it to the side and barricaded himself inside a shed.

The police were called to the house because of a disturbance and the caller said that a man was holding a hatchet. Sharp stated that the officers discovered that the person that was allegedly holding the hatchet was Beshear’s step-dad, and alleged victim, William Baker.

After officers were able to get Beshear out of the shed, the affidavit states that he was put in handcuffs. It was allegedly learned by officers that he lived in the shed outside his parents’ house, and Beshear and the homeowners got into an argument after electricity to the shed was cut, according to court documents.

It is alleged by prosecutors that Beshear first used a three-pound sledgehammer to threaten Baker. After that, he allegedly retrieved a BB gun to assault him. In the affidavit, Beshear is accused of using the hammer to damage property of his parents. The malicious injury to property misdemeanor that he faces indicates that the alleged property was valued at less than $1,000.

If convicted of the assault with a deadly weapon, Beshear could potentially face life in prison. He could also face up to 10 years in prison for the assault with a dangerous weapon charge and a year in the county jail for the malicious injury to property charge, if convicted. The dangerous weapon charge could land him a year in county jail if he

is convicted.
