PAWHUSKA — Shidler resident Cameron Jacob Enox, 26, is being held in the Osage County Jail on $500,000 bond and a charge of aggravated assault and battery on a police officer that resulted in maiming.
Enox was arrested on May 4 and is accused of running over a deputy with his vehicle.
Sheriff Eddie Virden said sometime before 3 a.m. Monday, May 4, a deputy tried pull over a car for a traffic stop, but the car took off starting a pursuit. Virden said the vehicle slammed on the brakes near St. Paul and Lynn Lane in Pawhuska and that the deputy got out of his unit.
Enox reportedly put his vehicle in reverse, ran over the deputy, and fled the scene. Virden said a Pawhuska police officer was on scene assisting the deputy when Enox turned his vehicle around and sped toward the pair.
Virden said the Pawhuska officer pulled out his gun and fired shots toward the car. Enox reportedly exited the vehicle and fled.
Officers arrested a female passenger from Arkansas City, Kan. Virden said she was released with out charges and that deputy is home recovering from surgery. “We took him some snacks today,” said Virden. “We weren’t able to visit him in the hospital because of the COVID-19 crisis.” The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is now investigating. Enox is facing a felony charge of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony in Kay County. That charge was filed the same day as the incident that occurred in Osage County. Bond in that case is set at $50,000. He was also arrested in Arkansas City, Kan. in March following pursuit. (see story)
