Deputies arrested Justin Bishop Wednesday after he ran from police and went into a home in west Tulsa.

Bishop was on a motorcycle when a deputy tried to stop him but he took off. He then ditched the motorcycle and ran into a house.

Bishop finally surrendered to deputies after 30 minutes of them beating on the doors, trying to get him to come outside.

"We set up a perimeter, we made several demands on the house and announcements and the subject finally did come out,” said Sergeant Travis Jones. 

After Bishop's arrest, five others came out of the house and deputies arrested two for warrants.
        
Deputies said the owner of the house is already in jail, but Bishop was not supposed to be at the house.

"He's had multiple arrests for possession of stolen vehicles as well as some others," Jones said.     

Records show officers arrested Bishop for stealing an SUV on August 7th.

Then, deputies arrested him just a week later on accusations of stealing another SUV and running from police.
   
Deputies said bishop tried to change his appearance to get away.

"He had gone in and tried to change clothes trying to hide his identity from the descriptors we had. We were able to locate that clothing that he ran from the original scene in," Jones said. 

Deputies said these situations can be very dangerous and they’re just thankful it ended without a fight.
