They even searched for him with the police helicopter but couldn't track him down.

The driver has been identified as Preston Michael Phorn of Tulsa. He was booked on complaints of driving left of center, improper tag light violation and obstructing/resisting officers.

The 23-year-old man has been released on bond.

A woman in the car wasn't arrested.
