Police arrest a Tulsa County public defender after he led officers on a high-speed chase early Monday.

Officers first responded to a reported domestic disturbance and burglary in the 2500 block of South Cincinnati just before 11 p.m. Sunday.

They say Clayton Ijams, 43, had broken into his ex-wife's home and left. According to an arrest report, he "kicked/threw" a bicycle at her, causing an injury to her leg.

Two hours later, police say Ijams returned. Police officers spotted him driving away in an SUV and gave chase.  Officers used spike strips, stopping the Honda Pilot near 61st and Sheridan.

Ijams jumped out and ran, but a K9 officer tracked him to the backyard of a nearby home where he was arrested.

EMSA paramedics and firefighters treated Clayton Ijams for a dog bite, before police took him to jail.

He was booked into the Tulsa County jail on complaints of burglary, eluding, assault and battery on a police officer, domestic assault and battery and DUI.

The arrest report lists Ijams' employment as a Tulsa County public defender.
