Oklahoma City police arrested a man on Christmas Eve after he was allegedly caught having sex with a goat.
Darryl Gene Scoggin, 53, was arrested on Dec. 24 and charged with one count of committing a crime against nature, first reported KOKH, a local Fox affiliate.
Authorities arrived at a Oklahoma City farm at around 10:30 p.m. that evening after receiving a 911 call. Once on the scene, a witness told them he had spotted a man later identified as Scoggin on surveillance video with his pants around his ankles, holding down a goat and “obviously having sexual intercourse with the goat.” The witness told investigators he then grabbed a firearm and bolted towards the barn, then chased the suspect down after a brief pursuit and held him at gunpoint until he could be brought into custody.
When police scoured the scene of the supposed crime for clues, the recovered a jacket allegedly belonging to Scoggin in the goat pen with a bottle of vodka in the pocket.
“The reporting party told police this is not the first time this has happened to their goats,” the station reported.
Police documents seen by The Washington Times suggest Scoggin was formally booked on Christmas morning on one count of a crimes against nature. He had previously served more than 15 years for a string of burglaries and was on probation at the time of the Christmas Eve incident for a previous conviction related to assaulting a medical provider.
One of Scoggin’s nicknames, according to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, is “Cowboy.” He had not previously been charged in Oklahoma with having sex with an animal. First time bestiality offenders face no more than 10 years in state custody.
