Slaughterville teen faces charges after allegedly ramming ex-girlfriend’s vehicle

NORMAN — A Slaughterville teen was charged with two counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon after he allegedly intentionally rammed his vehicle into another vehicle that his ex-girlfriend was traveling in.

Curtis Glenn Berry, 17, was charged with the assault counts in Cleveland County District Court on Tuesday. Cleveland County deputies were dispatched to a motor vehicle collision around 9:15 a.m. on Saturday at 9851 Cemetery Road.

When the deputies arrived at the scene, they found one of the vehicles rolled onto the driver’s side with the undercarriage resting against a tree. Two people were “lying on the ground with blood on their face,” the affidavit states. The two had been ejected from a vehicle.

The two vehicles involved were a black 1999 Chevrolet Sedan and a white 1998 Ford Ranger. The sedan was flipped over on its side.

One of the individuals ejected from the black sedan was a 21-year-old female. She was lying on her back between the two vehicles with a towel held against her neck to help slow the bleeding from a laceration caused by the collision, the affidavit states.

“(She) was conscious and breathing but was unable to communicate on scene and her mouth was bloodied,” the document states.

The other person ejected from the vehicle was a 19-year-old male who was lying on his back next to the trunk of the black sedan, on the undercarriage side of the vehicle. The teen was “screaming for help and that his back and insides were hurting,” the document states.

The 19-year-old then advised deputies that Berry had been chasing him and the female and ran them off the roadway while driving in excess of 70 mph. He advised that Berry had been chasing them from Cemetery and Pine Ridge Road, a distance of approximately two miles, according to the affidavit.
