Here’s your weekly bizarre-ness Oklahoma!
Over The Weekend
Religious Reversal: East Central University reversed a plan to remove crosses and bibles from a campus chapel almost as soon as it was enacted after complaints. The school says they will leave it up to a committee whether or not the church can display religious symbols and texts.
Flimsy Conspiracy: A Ponca City woman is charged with a Federal crime after using Craigslist to find a hitman willing to murder her husband who lives in Israel. She advertised the job as a “10 day overseas gig” complete with a PowerPoint presentation of how the hit should be carried out.
Bad Teacher: A former Salpulpa teacher accepted a plea deal after her spring arrest for stealing school property to buy drugs and even using school computers to aid in purchasing and selling heroin.
Not-So-Great Escape: Police in Lawton are on the search for an inmate who simply walked out of the city jail after cleaning up trash in the police station.
Battle Of The Nerds: An OKC man was booked on assault charges after he reportedly beat up a man during an argument over whether or not Star Wars or Star Trek is better.
Dumb Deputy: A McClain County sheriff’s deputy is now jobless after getting busted in Grady County for speeding 128 MPH in a 65 MPH zone. The deputy also apparently had open liquor containers in the vehicle and had been racing up and down the street with another vehicle.
