Tulsa Police said a suspect jumped or fell from a moving police car on the Broken Arrow Expressway Tuesday night.

Police were taking Erik Johnson, 30, to the Tulsa County jail. As the patrol car approached downtown Tulsa's IDL, Johnson unbuckled his seat belt and opened the door. The officer quickly slowed down before Johnson fell out and onto the highway.
