Man wanted in Choctaw County arrested

By  | 

HUGO, OK -- Hugo police have arrested a man wanted on several felony charges.

Sheriff Terry Park says 36-year-old Michael Fitzpatrick was arrested at a Hugo home without incident on Saturday.

An arrest warrant was issued for Fitzpatrick last month after he allegedly forced his estranged wife inside his home at gunpoint and then told his daughter to get inside.

Authorities say he then began hitting the woman with his fist and gun and at one point choked her with a belt.

Investigators say the mom and daughter escaped but as they were leaving, Fitzpatrick fired a gun at the vehicle, hitting one of the doors.

He is being held in the Choctaw County jail.
