A high-speed chase for miles across Northeast Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a trooper tried to stop the driver of a BMW near Vinita.

Around Claremore he lost his two front tires, which sent sparks flying! The chase ended when the driver lost control at the end of the Will Rogers Turnpike and he was arrested.

A search of his car turned up some drugs and bullets, but no gun. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of cuts and bruises.

His name hasn't been released.
