Scott Osborn, 29, was booked on a complaint of aggravated assault and battery.  He bonded out of jail Thursday afternoon.

Osborn is accused of beating Neng Yang after Yang said he accidentally ran over and killed Osborn's dog.

Yang said he apologized and offered to pay for the dog, but says Osborn knocked him out.  Yang said he was covered in blood and suffered a shattered nose, cheekbones and two broken ribs.

Osborn told deputies he was afraid Yang was going to hit him, so he punched first.

Note: The man identified in the story is not the Tulsa police officer Scott Osborn who is currently serving his country overseas.

Osborn is expected to go to court next Wednesday, March 16th, 2011.
