Man Hits Two Sapulpa Patrol Cars During High-Speed Pursuit
SAPULPA, Oklahoma - A man who led officers on a chase from Sapulpa to Tulsa and back again is in custody Tuesday morning. The pursuit began around 1 a.m. after someone called in a report of a suspicious person at the QuikTrip near Interstate 44 and 49th West Avenue.
Sapulpa Police went to check it out, and the driver took off. Tulsa Police and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers assisted as the man, identified as Daniel Miller, went all the way east on I-44 to 129th East Avenue in Tulsa. He zig-zagged around Tulsa getting off on Memorial Drive before getting back on I-44 westbound.
The top speeds during the chase were 80 to 100 mph, according to Sergeant Mike Sole, Sapulpa Police Department.
Sole said they used stop sticks to flatten the Miller's tires and try to end the chase. The man damaged two Sapulpa patrol cars before being stopped at the Town West Shopping Center where he was taken into custody.
No one was hurt during the chase. Police said aren't sure why Miller ran.
