An arrest of two subjects on Wednesday lead to a charge of false personation, assault and battery and two charges of public intoxication. 

Jimmie Vanover told a Chickasha Police Department officer a male wearing a black t-shirt assaulted him by punching him multiple times in the face, a CPD affidavit read. 

Another officer detained two males fleeing the area at 4th St. and Tennessee Ave.  based off of Vanover's description. 

One suspect identified himself as James Ahtone, date of birth Sept. 6, 1990. The officer said Ahtone appeared to be intoxicated. He observed Ahtone had slow, slurred speech, glassy eyes and smelled of what he assumed was an alcoholic beverage on his breath and person. 

Vanover's description of his attacker matched Ahtone's appearance in race, hair color, height, build, clothing description and tattoos. 

Ahtone was arrested and transported to the Grady County Jail and booked for public intoxication and assault and battery. 

The officer was unable to find information on the name James Ahtone, and after contacting the detention officer, was told that this was false information. Ahtone's real name, the affidavit said, is Victor Earl Ahtone, date of birth, Nov. 1, 1988. The officer was able to retrieve a driver's license from dispatch. An additional charge of False Personation was added. 

The other suspect was identified as Trey Wooster. 

The officer who detained Wooster observed the suspect's eyes were glassy and watery, his speech was slow. The officer also observed that the suspect struggled to stand up straight and perform menial tasks such as talking and describing who he was. Based on the officer's description he was placed under arrest, transported and booked into the Grady County Jail for public intoxication.
