McAlester officer beaten in Saturday night brawl

McALESTER — A Saturday night fight ended with a McAlester police officer injured and a McAlester father and his twin sons in jail.

Dustin Dale Williams, 41, and his sons, Hayden Charles Williams and Hunter Vance Williams, both 18, were charged Monday in Pittsburg County District Court with aggravated assault and battery on a police officer, assault and battery on a police officer and obstructing an officer.

According to a court affidavit filed in the case, McAlester police were dispatched Saturday night to a fight at 725 S. D St. The affidavit states that officer Sterling Taylor was the first to arrive and was advised by Dustin Williams that the fight was over and “everything was okay.”

The affidavit alleges Taylor attempted to talk to the father and sons at the scene and all three told him that the fight had ended and told Taylor to leave.

The affidavit alleges Taylor warned the Williamses they could be arrested after they allegedly threatened bodily harm to men who had been involved in the fight.

The affidavit alleges that’s when Taylor was attacked by all three men, and was choked.

Once Taylor was able to use his portable police radio to call for help, the men quit fighting and went inside their home, the affidavit alleges. Taylor followed them into the home to arrest them, the affidavit states.

The three then attacked Taylor inside the home until other officers arrived, the affidavit alleges.

The affidavit states Taylor was transported to McAlester Regional Health Center where he was treated and released.

Hayden and Dustin were also taken to MRHC, treated and released to police custody, according to McAlester Police Det. Sgt. Chris Morris.

The three Williamses were released from the Pittsburg County Jail on Monday in lieu of $50,000 each.

A working number could not be found for the family.

If convicted of the charges against them, they each face up to seven years in jail and $1,500 in fines.
