A Lieutenant with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol is being honored for his actions leading up to a search warrant in Talihina last year. 

OHP says Lieutenant Eddie Bohanan was given the Chief's Award for working closely with the Talihina Chief of Police during the execution of a dangerous search warrant last May. 

While serving the warrant, OHP says the suspect engaged troopers in a violent gun battle, resulting in several injuries and the death of the suspect.
