DEL CITY, Okla. -- It's become an all too familiar scene for Randall Parker. For the second time in a couple months, a car came sailing through his Del City property.

"He came through my yard and crashed on the other side of Bryant. He took off running at the cop tazed him in the yard next door," Parker said.

It all began around 11 a.m. Tuesday morning at a BancFirst.

Authorities say a man tried to cash a bogus check. Del City police spotted the suspect, and after a short high speed chase, he was caught.

Del City Police Major Jody Suit told us, "There was a pursuit that went through the neighborhood behind us."

The suspect, 48-year-old David Bridges, lost control and crashed.

Police say it's fortunate nobody in the neighborhood was injured.

"Any pursuit is dangerous. It's a large weapon on wheels. It's a lot of weigh. We take it very seriously," Suit said.

Bridges was checked out then hauled off to the Oklahoma County Jail. Police say he was driving a stolen ca and will face a long list of felony charges.
