Ransom was arrested on a complaint of aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon and unrelated county warrants just before 12:30 Tuesday afternoon.  Ransom was not interviewed following his arrest because it was believed he was too intoxicated at the time. The victim, a 66 year old man, had at least two stab wounds to his upper torso. He was flown to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he was admitted in critical condition.
