OKLAHOMA CITY –  Charges have been filed against the Oklahoma City man who led authorities on an hours-long high-speed chase.

Brenton Hager, 25, is in the Cleveland County Detention Center on multiple charges stemming from a stolen vehicle pursuit that started late Friday morning. It ended in a farm field in Cleveland County after a lengthy standoff and chase through the field.

Oklahoma City Police say the pursuit started near SW44th and Agnew after the owner spotted the truck, a 2006 Ford F-250, which had been reported stolen out of Grady County.

The pursuit eventually led police to a farm field in Cleveland County near SW 164th and Pennsylvania an hour later.

The suspect broadcasted portions of the chase on Facebook.

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, the suspect 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.

Hager, who has served prison time for vehicle theft, was booked into jail on multiple charges including vehicle theft, driving with a suspended or revoked license, assaulting, resisting and eluding police officers.

This week, charges were filed against Hager 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.
