ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says its agents have arrested Carter County’s sheriff on a bribery complaint.

The OSBI says Sheriff Milton Anthony was arrested at the sheriff’s office about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday on the felony bribery complaint. The 65-year-old Anthony was booked into the county jail and bond was set at $20,000.
