TULSA, Okla. (TCD) — Police arrested a man they allege stabbed a victim with a flagpole, causing him to most likely lose an eye.
In a statement, Tulsa Police said officers were called to a Sonic in Tulsa Hills on 81st Street to a report of a stabbing and found a man “with a flagpole through his head.” Police said the pole went through the bottom of his mouth and out the right side of his head near the temple.
According to police, the American flag was still attached.
Witnesses at the scene reportedly told police they saw Clinton Collins “charge at the victim and stab him with the flagpole through his head.”
Collins allegedly said after the stabbing, “That’s what he gets. He deserved it.”
Tulsa Police said firefighters from the Tulsa Fire Department arrived and had to “cut part of the flagpole in order to fit the victim into the ambulance.”
The victim is expected to survive, but police believe there is a possibility he will lose an eye.
Officers arrested Collins at the scene and took him into custody on a charge of maiming after former conviction of a felony.
