A police chase has led to the arrest of a federal fugitive in Tulsa.

U-S Marshals spotted a man wanted for a federal probation violation at a truck stop near 129th East Avenue and Interstate 244. When they tried to arrest him, he drove off.

Tim Welch, US Marshal: "His name is John Pellagraino . He's wanted for supervised release."

Authorities say Pellagraino had a conviction in Oklahoma several years ago and spent time in prison.
