OHP trooper hurt on way to pursuit


INOLA, Okla. (AP) _ An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper suffered a gash on his head when he crashed while on his way to help in the pursuit of a suspected mobile methamphetamine lab.

Trooper Rodney Vick, 23, was treated Monday at Claremore Regional Hospital after his car flipped on Oklahoma 88 near Inola, OHP Lt. Brandon Kopepasah said. The injury wasn't life-threatening, Kopepasah said.

After leading authorities on a 45-minute chase that stretched into Wagoner, Rogers and Mayes counties, Christopher Brannon, 28, and Jennifer Green, 18, were apprehended about a mile west of Inola, Police Chief Les Wilmot said.

Brannon was jailed in Broken Arrow on complaints of manufacturing and possessing methamphetamine, attempting to elude authorities and carrying a concealed weapon, said Broken Arrow Police Capt. Brandon Berryhill.

Green was the passenger in the vehicle. She was jailed on a complaint of manufacturing methamphetamine, Berryhill said.
