Cancer Clinic Employee Arrested During Facility Shut Down

Michael McDonnough

An employee of a cancer clinic was arrested Tuesday afternoon the same day federal investigators shut down his employer in south Tulsa.

Tulsa Police arrested Michael McDonnough and booked him on an assault and battery of a police officer complaint. He was taken into custody at the site of the Camelot Cancer Care, which is under investigation by the FBI and the Food and Drug Administration.

According to the arrest report, federal agents arrived at the facility near 71st and Yale Tuesday afternoon to execute a search warrant. At the scene officers told McDonnough that he could leave.

Moments later agents noticed that he secretly returned to the site and gained access back into the building to remove a computer. When he was confronted by the officials he refused to give them the computer and shoved an agent out of his way.

"He then retrieved a backpack and attempted to walk back past the agent. Again he shoved the agent out of his way, knocking them into a wall," wrote the police officer at the scene.

Agents chased McDonnough after he attempted to escape the building. When the officers caught up to him he turned around in an aggressive stance, according to the booking report.

Officers were forced to place him into custody while McDonnough resisted arrest the entire time. He also reportedly attempted to remove an item out of his backpack, which was later identified as a 9mm pistol.

He is now being held on a total $15,000 bond and due in court next week.
