OKLAHOMA CITY – A man who led authorities on a three-hour long high-speed chase has been arrested again.
Last month, Brenton Hager, 25, made headlines after leading police on a three-hour long standoff and chase through the metro.
A civilian, at one point during the pursuit, cornered the suspect and fired a weapon at the vehicle.
After leading police on a pursuit through the fields, Hager crashed the truck into a farm pond and tried to get away.
Police officers eventually caught up with him in the brush and deployed a taser, taking Hager to the ground and in to custody.
Police could not say that any weapons were found at the scene, but reports were that he was telling his mother that he did have a gun.
Hager, who has served prison time for vehicle theft, was charged for assault and battery on a police officer, eluding, resisting arrest, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, driving under suspension, affixing improper tag to vehicle, reckless driving, and malicious injury destruction of property.
Since then, Hager was released from the Cleveland County Jail on bond.
However, he finds himself back in jail for allegedly stealing another vehicle.
Just before 8 a.m. on December 12, a man called police saying his vehicle had been stolen.
The man said he had left his vehicle idling to warm up.
While he was inside his apartment, the vehicle was stolen.
Thursday morning, Hager was allegedly found with the vehicle at the Executive Inn in the 6400 block of N.W. Expressway.
He was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail for concealing stolen property and receiving/possessing/concealing/selling/disposing of a stolen vehicle on a $4,000 bond.
After learning of Hager’s arrest, District Judge Thad Balkman in Cleveland County signed an order enhancing Hager’s bond to $1 million.
If he bonds out of the Oklahoma County Jail, he will be picked up by Cleveland County officials and booked into the Cleveland County Jail.
