TULSA, OK -- A drunk driver lead Tulsa police officers on a chase at about 11:00 Friday night.

Police say the pursuit started in the 3600 block of North Lewis when officers tried to stop the driver.

Police say it looked like he was going to stop at Apache and Lewis. Instead, the driver rammed another vehicle, pushing it through the intersection. The driver of that vehicle was not hurt, but their vehicle was damaged.

The driver continued south to Pine, then east on Pine to Sheridan, where police used stop sticks and deflated some of his tires.

Police say the driver, in his mid 20s, was intoxicated. Officers found a bottle of vodka in the cup holder of his truck.
