OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A high-speed chase that traveled through Oklahoma City on Wednesday morning ended in a bizarre place.
“Now, I’ve been doing this a long time, and I’ve never seen anybody drive themselves to the jail,” said McIntyre Law Chopper 4 pilot Mason Dunn.
The Oklahoma County Sheriff, Tommie Johnson III, told KFOR the ordeal started when his deputies were trying to serve Devin Kiser a warrant for drugs around 11 a.m.
“While they were trying to execute that warrant, the suspect spotted them first and then proceeded to drive off,” said Sheriff Johnson.
This happened in the area of Northwest 39th Expressway and MacArthur Boulevard. Immediately, officers began a pursuit.
Early on when the chase started there was a second person in the car, Michael Danner, who bailed out, according to Aaron Brilbeck, a spokesman for the OCSO.
Meanwhile, Kiser led law enforcement on about a twenty-minute long pursuit to downtown Oklahoma City. Throughout the course of the chase, he appeared to have thrown multiple baggies out of his SUV’s window.
“The suspect in the car was throwing out baggies or dumping baggies with some substance in it,” said Sheriff Johnson. “At this time, we don’t know what that is. It still has to be tested to determine what it is.”
In a bizarre turn, Kiser eventually drove straight to the Oklahoma County Detention Center and surrendered in the parking lot.
“He was going to be taken there anyway,” said Sheriff Johnson. “So, you know, kudos to him. Made it a lot easier on us, but we would have liked it if he just pulled over and we could have handled things in a much easier, safer way.”
According to the OCDC’s website, Kiser was booked for a multitude of charges, including possession of a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia, destroying evidence and eluding a police officer.
Brilbeck said Danner will likely at least face an eluding charge.
