OKLAHOMA CITY – One man was taken into custody after leading officers on a chase Thursday afternoon.
Officers with the Oklahoma City Police Department attempted to pull over a car for a traffic violation near N.W. 63rd and Broadway.
However, the driver refused to stop and led officers and deputies on a chase in northwest Oklahoma City.
The driver led along I-44 and eventually crossed onto the Hefner Parkway.
Police say he exited the highway on N.W. 50th and crashed near N.W. 51st St. and Summit.

Officers say they do not know why the driver refused to stop, but say they found a package inside the car that they believe contains some form of narcotics.
