Threat sends man to jail
A man is accused of threatening to kill convenience store workers over his missing wallet, court records show. Ronald Eugene Hainey, 65, of Oklahoma City, was charged Wednesday in Oklahoma County District Court with threatening to perform an act of violence, a misdemeanor. According to a probable cause affidavit, Hainey “believed someone in the store stole his wallet” and told employees “he was going to kill them all” and to “prepare for their funerals” if he did not get his wallet back. Hainey is accused of threatening employees of Circle K, 2840 SW 59. He was arrested Oct. 8. Hainey told police “I only did it because I was mad that someone stole my wallet,” the affidavit states.

The victim, Jason Michael Gunkel, told police a large black man “came out of the shadows and demanded his wallet,” according to a police incident report. The victim was stabbed in the back and required medical attention for a laceration that went through his muscle. His story didn't check out, and the man's girlfriend was arrested in connection with the stabbing. Abigail Stewart, 24, remained in the Oklahoma County jail Wednesday on a complaint of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Sooner faces two felonies
University of Oklahoma sophomore wide receiver Trey Metoyer was released on his own recognizance Wednesday after making an initial court appearance on two felony charges of indecent exposure. Metoyer, 20, is accused of exposing himself on two occasions at a southeast Norman apartment complex. According to a court affidavit filed in Cleveland County District Court, Metoyer exposed himself Aug. 29 while sitting in his car parked near an apartment where a woman was standing outside on a balcony. A second count alleges he exposed himself Sept. 17 to a woman outside another apartment after first asking her to go inside and get him a pen. When she returned with the pen, he was exposing himself, according to the woman's statement to police. One of the victims later identified Metoyer in a photo lineup, the affidavit states. The affidavit says Metoyer admitted to the incidents and told a police officer he was “not thinking clearly” at the times they occurred. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in an initial appearance before Special District Judge Steve Stice. Coach Bob Stoops said Metoyer has been suspended from the team. Stoops said he did not anticipate Metoyer returning to the team in the future.
