Deputies scratching their heads after man drops from Oklahoma City convenience store ceiling

OKLAHOMA COUNTY, Okla. – Deputies are still trying to figure out why a man took extreme measures to get away from them on Friday afternoon.

On Friday afternoon, members of the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office Warrant Team spotted a car with an expired paper tag. As deputies were trying to pull the vehicle over, the driver went straight to a convenience store near S.W. 29th and Blackwelder.

The driver went into the store and locked himself in the bathroom.

As deputies went into the store to see what was happening, the suspect fell through the ceiling.

Initially, the man was not providing any information to deputies and was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

A short time later, officials announced that the man had been identified and that he didn’t have any warrants for his arrest. However, the man said that he thought he was in trouble because he hadn’t reported to his parole officer in a while.

Investigators say he could face out-of-custody charges of resisting arrest, improper tags, no insurance, destruction of private property and interfering with an investigation.
