Multiple Guns Tossed From Speeding Car During Tulsa Police Chase
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa Police have arrested two people who they say were throwing handguns out of their car during a high-speed chase with officers Wednesday.
At the end of the chase, all four tires on the car were blown out by stop sticks.
Officers said the driver went from speeds above 90 miles an hour to less than 45, struggling just to get up a hill.
Officers said eventually, the car stopped at the edge of a property.
Officers said they tried to pull the car over near 21st and Highway 169, but instead of stopping, the driver in the black, four-door car took off.
Police tried to use stop sticks twice to end the chase, but the driver kept going even though all four tires were flat.
They said the driver finally stopped on Mingo south of 36th St. North, where officers took David Sack and Kayley Williams into custody.
"We didn't know exactly what we were encountering. When they started to flee that's when we pursued but when they started throwing guns out that peaked our interest a little bit further," said Darren Bristow with Tulsa Police.
Officers said the car the couple was in matches the description of a vehicle used in a recent armed robbery.
Officers said that Robbery Unit detectives will also be interviewing the two to make sure they are not connected to any recent crimes.
