Oklahoma City Woman Accused of Trying to Run Over "Baby Daddy"

27-May-2013

In a scene that seems made for Cops or Jerry Springer, Oklahoma City police arrested a woman last week after she allegedly attempted to run over her "baby daddy."

Police responded to SW 21st and S Goff Avenue after Krystal Eula Martin, 23, called police to say that her "baby daddy put his hands on" her. When they arrived at the scene, they found Martin's ex-boyfriend walking along SW 22nd followed by a gold car driven by the angry woman. The man told officers that Martin was trying to run him over, and he showed them a large carving knife that he said he took from her after she used it to slash his tires.

Martin, who had her two young children in the car with her, admitted to police that she slashed the man's tires, saying that she did so because he punched her in the face and he was trying to get away. She said that "police don't do anything to him," after she called to report the alleged assault.

Though Martin says she was reacting to an assault by her ex-boyfriend, the man accused her of having a violent temper and said that she started the fight.

Police arrested Martin on a complaint of domestic assault with a dangerous weapon and booked her into the Oklahoma County Jail, where she was being held without bail.

If Martin wanted to show police that she was not the one with violent tendencies and help her lawyer demonstrate that she was not the instigator, her reaction to her arrest may not have been the best way of doing so. Police say as Martin was being arrested, she began screaming at police, repeatedly yelling, "[Expletive] cops better get some security when I get out!" When she was placed into the back of the patrol car, she began kicking the cage.

Martin's children were released into the custody of her mother, who said her daughter and daughter's ex-boyfriend are always fighting.

Domestic violence is defined under Oklahoma state law as assault and battery against specified individuals with whom the offender has a relationship, including a current or former spouse, the spouse of a former spouse, a family member by blood or marriage, someone with whom the offender lives or has lived in the past, a current or former dating partner, and a person with whom the offender shares a child--like Martin's "baby daddy." 

Domestic assault with a dangerous weapon is a felony punishable by a maximum of ten years in prison. If the dangerous weapon is a firearm, and if the assailant actually shoots the victim, the defendant is subject to a penalty of life in prison for shooting with intent to kill.
