OKLAHOMA CITY - A high-speed chase through the metro came to a dramatic end.

It started on Wednesday evening with a call about a stolen truck near S.W. 15th and May Ave.

Officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department say they tried to pull over the driver of the pickup truck as it headed eastbound on I-240.

The chase reached speeds of 90 miles per hour, and also dipped to as slow as 15 miles per hour.

At some point, the truck lost the front right tire, causing sparks to fly behind the truck.

When the truck finally came to a stop near Lake Stanley Draper, police took two people into custody. However, the driver jumped out of the vehicle and ran into a nearby wooded area.

Eventually, officers captured him as well.

Authorities arrested Jeremy Bartlett, Talon Rusher and LaDawna Beene-McMichael.

Bartlett was arrested for aggravated eluding a police officer, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle collision and unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Rusher was arrested for unauthorized use of a vehicle, while Beene-McMichael was arrested for four counts of possession of controlled dangerous substances with intent to distribute, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of possession of proceeds in violation of UCDSA.
