These 10 Towns In Oklahoma Are On Santa’s Naughty List This Year
Do you think your town will be getting a visit from Santa and his reindeer this week? Some towns in Oklahoma might not be so lucky since their statistics of crime, drunkenness and divorce rates are the highest in the state. Here are 10 towns in Oklahoma that might be receiving coal in their stockings for being extra naughty:
Ardmore ranks as the city with the highest rate of both violent and property crime. Residents of Ardmore have a 1 in 67 chance of being the victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 15 chance of being the victim of a property crime. This is not the way to get on Santa's nice list, Ardmore.
Lawton was named the drunkest city in Oklahoma in 2015. The study was based off of adults who binge or heavy drink and driving deaths related to alcohol.
There are more bars per capita in Tulsa than anywhere else in the state. Tulsa County also ranks at the top for the highest number of meth labs. Naughty, naughty Tulsa.
4. Oklahoma City
OKC was the 5th biggest market for the website ashleymadison.com, an online-dating website catering to married people looking for a discreet affair. Which might help explain it being on the list of "America's 50 Divorce Capitals."
Located in south-central Oklahoma, about 50 miles east of Ardmore, Durant is the second most dangerous city in the state overall. From 2011-2013, the violent crime rate increased by 6%, and the property crime went up by 52%. This definitely does not make Santa happy.
As one of the biggest college party towns in the country, it's no surprise that Norman ranks 2nd in the state for drunkest cities in Oklahoma. Norman has the 3rd most bars per person.
With a population of only 8,395, Wagoner ranks 3rd for the drunkest city in the state. There are quite a few bars for such a small community. And, the divorce rate here is almost 16%.
Not only does Ada rank 4th in the state for the drunkest cities, but it also ranks 3rd for number of liquor stores per capita.
Little Clinton has more liquor stores per person than anywhere else in the state and a divorce rate that’s creeping towards 15%.
Located in central Oklahoma, Shawnee has the 4th worst rate of property crime in the state, with residents facing a 1 in 18 chance of being the victim of theft or arson. They did have a huge drop in violent crime, so we'll leave this one up to Santa to decide on.
