TULSA, OK -- Two men were arrested for eluding police, resisting arrest and outstanding warrants after a chain link fence ended a Tulsa police pursuit overnight Thursday.

Tulsa police received a call just before 3 a.m. that a GMC pickup had been stolen from the QuikTrip at 214 N. Gilcrease Museum Road. An officer working radar in a construction zone on the IDL spotted the truck heading east on Interstate 244 and followed the vehicle.

Officers attempted to pull the truck over near 17th and Lewis, but the driver refused to stop. After a short pursuit, the men in the pickup drove into an alley to avoid stop sticks that had been placed in the roadway by TPD officers.

The alleyway ended in a fenced lot, and the men abandoned the truck – leaving it in drive. The truck rolled into a police car and then a 6-ft. chain link fence, according to on scene reports.

Tulsa police took the two men in the truck into custody. Joshua Chance Fulmer, 20, was arrested for eluding police, resisting arrest and driving with a suspended license. Jason Alan Kravis, 29, was arrested for resisting arrest and an outstanding speeding warrant.

"After the end of the pursuit it was determined the vehicle was not stolen, but the complainant's separated husband had loaned the vehicle to the suspect," according to a Tulsa Police update.

"The victim did not know this or the subjects and thought it was stolen."
