Tori Looney

WARNING: This story contains adult language.

Tori Mikale Looney, 18, is charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor after police say they heard her yelling at her family and threatening someone to “beat your ass.”

According to an affidavit filed with the case, officers were called to a disturbance in Fort Gibson at 11:38 p.m. on Tuesday. Officer Austin Hughart says he heard Looney threaten someone “I will beat your ass,” and “you are never going to see your kids again, you cunt,” and “I will hurt all of you.”

Hughart says he attempted to place Looney under arrest, but she allegedly refused to place her hands behind her back. A short struggle ensued during which she was able to lay on her back and allegedly kick Hughart in the torso twice, also allegedly attempting to head-butt officer Brent Maddocks.

The two men were eventually able to subdue the teen, who is now charged with two counts of assault and battery on a police officer and one count of threatening to perform a violent act.
