A Tulsa Police manhunt Tuesday morning ends with a suspect in custody. It’s a story you'll only see here on the "News on 6."

Authorities acting on a tip went to a west Tulsa home at 1700 West Newton around 6 AM. That's where they found 22-year-old Eric O'Donnell hiding. O'Donnell had a warrant out of Logan County on explosives charges. After some negotiations, he was arrested, but not without putting up a fight. Tulsa Police Corporal Dan Miller, “Eric at first attempted to surrender to us but decided to fight at which time pepper spray was administered.”

Police say O'Donnell tried to hide from officers by lying under several inches of insulation.

He's been taken to the Tulsa County Jail and will await a transfer back to Logan County.
