Bixby Police get more than they bargained for during a routine traffic stop overnight.

Shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday, a police officer tried to pull a driver over for running a stop sign at 143rd and Urbana.  That driver pulled into a driveway, got out of his car and ran off. 

Police say the passenger in the car started fighting with officers, spit on them, and even kicked out a window of a police car before he was taken to the Tulsa County jail. 

The suspect faces a variety of charges including resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer. 

The driver of the car has not been found.
