[Photograph 2012.201.B0924.0555]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "Frontier City's "Doc Holliday" and "Marshal" Clay were free on $500 bond each Wednesday after they pleaded innocent to charges of aggravated assault and battery, which grew out of the "arrest" and pistol whipping of two teenaged boys at the tourist attraction in OKC. The wild west showmen facing the charges are R. J. Mythen, 42, alias "Doc Holliday," and Charles W. Clay, 31, who plays the role of a marshal in the daily shows at Frontier City. According to a sheriff's office investigation, the two men informed two teens that they could not "drink beer on the streets," and the incident grew to a "pistol whipping," as the boys suffered several cuts to the head. The men are expected to face trial in September."
