OKLAHOMA CITY -- Two men were arrested for allegedly assaulting three men, including a 12-year-old boy, at an Oklahoma City pool hall Sunday.

Witnesses told police Robert Earl Cooper II, 29, and Toby Joe Longacre, 30, were drinking and playing pool at Slick Willies, 4000 W. Reno Avenue, when they got into an argument with a man, who was with his 12-year-old son.

When the man and his son decided to leave, Cooper and Longacre followed the two outside and continue the verbal assault.

Witnesses told police Cooper and Longacre then knocked the man to the ground and began hitting and kicking him. Cooper then punched the 12-year-old in the face.

A third man stepped in to try to break up the fight, but police said Cooper and Longacre knocked him down and started kicking and stomping on him. The man was transported to the hospital for his injuries.

When police arrived, Cooper and Longacre told them they were playing pool inside when everyone attacked them, and they had to fight their way out of the building. Police said neither Cooper nor Longacre had any injuries and were both "very intoxicated."

Cooper and Longacre were arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail. Both face charges of assault and battery.
