Payne County prosecutors have filed charges against a man for allegedly assaulting the Yale High School Principal, Bobby Rose.

According to court records, Rose said Stobaugh came to his office around 4:30 demanding to have a private conversation about his son, who attends Yale High School. The district superintendent Steve Shanks told officers he heard a commotion and Rose told him, “He put his hands on me.” They then called the officers.

Rose told police he was in his office when Mr. Stobaugh walked in and wanted to have a private conversation. Rose said he refused and told Stobaugh not to shut the door. Rose said Stobaugh continued to shut the door and demand to speak in private. Rose said he then went to the door to stop Stobaugh from closing it. Rose told police Stobaugh pushed his body against Mr. Rose’s body to stop him from opening the door and threw him into the wall of the office.

Police told prosecutors a school counselor sitting in a nearby office heard a conversation between the two men and a loud thud. The counselor said he heard Rose say, “Oh no, you’re not going to push me. That’s it. You’re not going to put your hands on me.” The counselor also told police he heard Stobaugh say Rose touched him first.

Police say Stobaugh told investigators he did go to Mr. Rose’s office and attempted to shut the door to have a private conversation with him. He says he did not put his hands on Rose, but said Rose opened the door and hit his foot which pushed him into Mr. Rose.

Police say Rose told police he saw a doctor for his shoulder and had a contusion.

Yale police say before this incident Stobaugh had called the department and spoke to a dispatcher on the recorded line to see if an officer was at the school taking a report on vandalism of his son’s truck. The dispatcher told Stobaugh the officer had left the school, Stobaugh responded, “I guess that’s why they passed the open carry law, so people like us can take care of these things ourselves.”
