OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police fished a car out of creek bed Friday morning after a chase with a suspect who fled authorities.

Oklahoma City officers tried to stop the suspect vehicle about 2:30 a.m. Friday when the driver hit the gas and took off.

Police were involved in a short chase that ended up on the grounds of the old Downtown Air Park at SW 15th and Western.

The suspect vehicle sped through the air park with Air One flying overhead.

Police cruisers were eventually able to surround the suspect vehicle, until he drove the vehicle over a 20 foot cliff and plowed it into a dry creek bed near the airpark.

Then, the suspect abandoned the vehicle and took off on foot.

Police arrested the suspect when a K-9 unit caught up to the man.

He was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Police do not know why he ran.

The car has not been reported stolen.
