The man's family told deputies the man had been drinking, had a firearm and wanted to harm himself.

Sheriff's deputies said the unidentified man was serving a suspended sentence and violated the terms of his sentence.  They also said the man had been texting his family and girlfriend throughout the night- saying if the sheriff's office leaves, he would come out. 

"Sometime this morning he did communicate with a family member and then he came out of the woods and went into protective custody with the Mayes County Sheriff's Office.  Hopefully we will be able to get this man the help he needs," said Sheriff's Office Captain Rod Howell.
