Man facing charges after allegedly leading deputies on a wild chase
LITTLE AXE, Okla. – One man is in custody after allegedly leading police and sheriff’s deputies on a wild chase.
Deputies with the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office say they arrived at a home to serve a protective order on Tuesday when they noticed one man trying to leave the property.
As they got to his vehicle, they say the man allegedly threw the Jeep in reverse, heading toward a deputy.
Fortunately, the deputy was able to jump out of the Jeep’s path and a chase ensued.
The suspect allegedly led police on a chase down Hwy 9, reaching speeds up to 110 miles per hour through construction zones.
At one point, the suspect hit stop sticks and bailed out of the car.
He was taken into custody and is facing numerous charges, on top of three existing warrants.
Authorities believe the man got spooked by their presence at the home because he knew of those existing warrants.
