Bradley John Glen Rice, 25, was booked into the Cushing City Jail on complaints of public intoxication, second-de- gree burglary, possession of burglary implements, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and malicious injury to property, Cushing Police Chief Tully Folden said in a news release.
