PORTER — An Oklahoma National Guard veteran who was hailed as a hero for his actions in fighting off a Taliban ambush in Afghanistan was arrested Tuesday, accused of shooting and killing a relative.
Maxx Robinson, 23, is accused of killing his uncle, Bill Cline, 58, during an altercation Tuesday at Cline’s home in Porter. Robinson was being held Friday at the Wagoner County jail with no bail.
According to a court affidavit, a Wagoner County deputy was at an intersection when he heard four gunshots nearby. The deputy was driving toward the area where he’d heard the shots when Robinson and his older brother, Skyler Robinson, flagged him down, the affidavit states. Maxx Robinson told the deputy he’d shot Cline, according to the affidavit.
Maxx Robinson was arrested on a murder complaint and booked into the Wagoner County jail. Skyler Robinson was arrested on a complaint of accessory to murder. He was released on $75,000 bail.
Skyler Robinson later told investigators his uncle was drunk when Skyler and Maxx Robinson arrived at his house.
While the two were at the house, Cline came out of the kitchen carrying a large knife, Skyler Robinson told police. While Skyler Robinson walked into the front yard to pour Cline’s drink out, he heard several gun shots coming from inside the house, he told investigators.
