A man is in custody on Tuesday morning after police say he led officers on a chase that ended with a damaged police car.

Police identified the suspect as Hunter Hines, who is currently in the Tulsa County Jail facing about a dozen charges.

The arrest report states that officers stopped Hines for an improper right turn near East Pine Street and North Peoria Avenue on Monday night. According to the report, Hines gave officers a fake name, but an officer at the scene recognized Hines and learned that he had warrants out for his arrest.

Officers said that when they tried to get Hines out of his vehicle he drove off, leading to a pursuit. According to officers, Hines eventually came to a stop before backing into a patrol car and fleeing his vehicle. Officers caught Hines and said that he resisted arrest. The report indicates that it took three officers to get him into handcuffs.

According to police, they also arrested a passenger who had warrants out for his arrest.

No officers were hurt in the altercation however, there was damage to the front bumper of the patrol car.
