Authorities say the deputy attempted to stop the driver, but he took off at a high rate of speed and refused to stop.

The man, later identified as 50-year-old Vincent Strobl, drove into the woods near Lake Stanley Draper, got out of the truck, and ran away.

According to the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were able to prove it was Strobl in the car because he left behind a cell phone, and paperwork with his name on it.
