Stabbing suspect becomes lawyer’s charge

He faces surgery, several stays in hospital

A Muskogee man charged in a knife fight outside a local club was released to his attorney’s recognizance Monday.

Tyeson Luke Bebee, 23, was charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon after a fight that sent three men to the hospital Thursday.

Bebee is charged with stabbing the three men and wounding another man after he allegedly pulled a knife on a bouncer outside Frog Wild Saloon, 3111 W. 40th St. N. Bebee didn’t appear in court Friday because of injuries he suffered during the fight. His attorney, Bob Locke, appeared in Special District Judge Robin Adair’s court Monday and said Bebee was injured.

With Bebee absent, Adair charged Bebee by way of information, released him to Locke’s recognizance and set his sounding docket for 9 a.m. March 20. At that hearing, a date will be set for Bebee’s preliminary hearing.

Locke said Bebee was “still in real bad shape” and would be in and out of the hospital in the near future.

“He’ll need to have surgery,” Locke said. “If he wasn’t a Marine, he’d be dead right now.”

Authorities allege that Bebee attacked the bouncer, Bryan Redfearn, early Thursday outside the club after he was ejected from it. Redfearn suffered “cuts and scrapes” during the attack, Muskogee County deputy Robbie Jackson said. The three other men, who came to Redfearn’s defense, were hospitalized with stab wounds, Jackson said.

Muskogee Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Christina Deidesheimer said Richard Brewer, 25, of Warner was listed in good condition Monday. Brewer was stabbed in the lower abdomen and was listed in serious condition Friday after surgery.

Olin Daniels, 25, and Kevin Yarbrough, 39, both of Muskogee, were released, Deidesheimer said. Daniels was stabbed in the right leg near the hip joint and Yarbrough was stabbed four times.
