Broken Arrow Driver In Tanker Chase Faces Several Charges
TULSA, Oklahoma -- The man suspected of leading several Tulsa County agencies on a dangerous chase from Owasso to downtown Tulsa in a gas tanker truck is facing several charges.
Rocky Nail, 47, of Broken Arrow, was booked into the Tulsa County Jail Sunday morning under numerous complaints, including assault with a deadly weapon, DUI, and a drug possession complaint.
Police say Nail led several law enforcement agencies on a chase, refusing to stop for Owasso police after running a red light in a gas tanker truck Saturday.
The chase went down U.S. Highway 169 and then onto the Broken Arrow Expressway westbound. Police say Nail made it all the way to downtown Tulsa where troopers managed to shoot out the tires, slowing the tanker.
The truck sideswiped several cars before coming to a rest near Mayfest and the Blue Dome Art festival in Tulsa.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, Nail has served time in the past for drug and sex offenses.
Nail is being held on an $80,000 bond.
