OKLAHOMA CITY — A man led police on a long chase overnight, losing all of his tires and driving on the rims before spinning out on I-44.

Around midnight Monday, police tried to pull the man over near N.W. 39th and Portland for having an expired tag.

John Kaiser told News 4 he’s never seen anything like it.

"I was just trying to catch the action of it as a newsworthy story, and I just ended up being at the right place at the right time,” Kaiser said.

So much so that he caught it all on camera.

"I was sitting at the house. I listen to the scanner off and on because a lot of things have been going on around here, and I heard a chase come on at Britton and Hefner-ish. Then, I heard one of the police ran over their spike sticks. So, the chase got a little hectic,” Kaiser said.

Police tried to deploy stop sticks several times.

The suspect lost all of his tires, but even that didn’t stop him.

"He makes a U-Turn, gets back on the expressway to Lake Hefner Parkway, gets on again. I was like boom. I jumped in the truck. I just live a couple miles from here,” Kaiser said.

At that point, the suspect was driving really slow with a whole army of officers behind him.

"He came right at me. I was just frozen. He went through the parking lot here at this McDonald's and proceeded down, and they said they got him at 20th,” Kaiser said.

Police took the suspect, Antonio Fuller, into custody.

According to the police report, officers on scene said Fuller stated he “ran from police because of God, since we were white.”

"There was 25-30 police. They had every intersection blocked off. They did a good job at keeping the public safe. I was dumb for coming here, but I didn't even think it would come to here. I figured they'd be stopped by then,” Kaiser said.

Fuller was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail for having an expired tag and evading police.
