ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma – News 9

The Rogers County Sheriff’s Department has arrested a man in connection to a homicide Saturday night.

Authorities said Clinton Cottom was a neighbor who showed up to a party uninvited and intoxicated on Saturday. Cottom was asked to leave after making unwanted sexual advances towards females at the party.

Cottom was acting belligerent and was physically restrained from entering the house, according to authorities.

Once Cottom left, he grabbed his truck from a neighbors house, returned to the party and started ramming the garage and driving towards attendees at high speeds.

Cottom was arrested and is facing multiple charges including first degree murder, sexual battery and four counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
