Police are looking for the man who led officers on a high-speed chase across Tulsa early Friday.

Officers said the chase started at about 1 a.m. when police were checking on a suspicious vehicle at 7th and Garnett.  The driver, identified as 24-year-old Anthony Russell, told police the car had broken down. They say he started the engine and sped away leading them on a chase with speeds reaching 100 m.p.h.

Police lost sight of the car but eventually found it parked near 2nd and Olympia. Officers said a check showed Russell was wanted for several outstanding warrants.
