STILLWATER — A Cushing man who allegedly punched a Cushing police officer in the face during a traffic stop at 600 E. Main Street over the weekend was charged Tuesday with felony assault and battery on a police officer.

Zachery Esiah Glenn, 25, was also charged with three misdemeanor counts, driving under the influence of alcohol, obstructing an officer and driving without a driver’s license.

Glenn appeared in district court earlier this week and was ordered to return Oct. 6 when he can ask for a preliminary hearing on the felony charge. He remains free on $20,000 bail.

Cushing Police Chief Terry Brannon told KUSH Wednesday that Sgt. Tully Folden received a broken nose and chipped tooth in the altercation, which occurred about 1 a.m. Saturday.

Folden was treated in the Cushing Regional Hospital emergency room and is back on duty, the police chief said.

If convicted of all four counts filed in connection with the Aug. 23 incident, Glenn could receive more than seven years behind bars and $2,300 in fines, according to the charge filed by Payne County prosecutor Kathy Thomas.
