Tulsa Police arrested a man that led them on a chase overnight.

Officers said they tried to pull over a maroon Chrysler 300 in the 1400 block of East Pine Street just before 2:00 Friday morning.

Police said the driver sped away east on Pine Street, went north on Highway 75 then east on Highway 11.

They said the driver reached about 100 miles per hour.

The TPD helicopter was in the air and called to assist. Police said once the helicopter arrived, it followed the suspect and the ground crews terminated their pursuit.

According to police, the driver eventually got off the highway and drove through several neighborhoods before stopping at a home in the 2700 block of South 104th East Avenue.

Before police got to the home, the driver parked the car in the garage and went inside before surrendering.

The man was identified as 19-year-old Marquail Campbell. Police said he was arrested on complaints of possession of marijuana, eluding and resisting arrest.
