Elusive pickup truck driver in Oklahoma City led police on chase through farmland, backroads

- An elusive pickup truck driver in Oklahoma City lead police on wild chase through farmland and backroads.

The pursuit began around 12 p.m. in Oklahoma City when officers gave chase to a pickup truck that was believed to have been stolen.

At one point during the chase, the driver of the alleged stolen vehicle stopped and removed a yellow box that was in the truck's bed. A car pulled behind the truck and the driver of that vehicle produced a handgun and fired shots at the pickup. The pickup sped away and it did not appear that the driver was shot.

Police unsuccessfully tried to place stop-strips in front of the pickup. Eventually, several of the pickup's tires went flat.

After leading police through acres of land, in efforts to escape, the suspect backed up into a pond. Unable to get out, the man began running on foot. Police later caught up, tased him to the ground and is under their custody.
