An officer has been fired from the Clayton Police Department in Pushmataha County after he was accused of choking his girlfriend in front of their children and refusing to allow her to call 911. The victim told officers that 33-year-old Austin Davis was drunk when he bit her several times, punched her in the face and slammed her neck and head into a truck window. The attack allegedly happened while Davis was driving the truck.
