Wagoner County Deputies arrested Tori Wheeler, 18, on a complaint for assault with a deadly weapon. Wheeler reportedly stabbed Derek Bauer during an incident that occurred at the residence in Wagoner County.

According to a release from the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office, deputies arrived at the scene where Wheeler told officers that she had initially informed her boyfriend, Bauer, that she was pregnant "as an April fools joke."
