Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers have one person in custody and are looking for a second after a pursuit Thursday morning in Tulsa. 

OHP said they tried to pull over a white Mustang for speeding around Interstate 244 and Lewis. The driver led them on a chase that went on the west side of downtown Tulsa and ended when the suspect stopped at 21st and West Olympia - on the west side of the Arkansas River near River Trails.

The driver jumped out of the vehicle and ran. The passenger stayed with the car and cooperated with authorities.

OHP Lt. Tom Montgomery said it appears the passenger was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. That person was released.

Tulsa County Sheriff's Office backed up OHP and searched the Brightwaters Apartments for the driver, but eventually called off the search. They said the suspect has a girlfriend at the complex.

They have not captured him as yet.
