A disturbance at a Tulsa bar leads to the arrest of two men who may be suspects in a series of robberies.

About 11:30 PM Wednesday, two men started a fight in a Tulsa bar near 61st and Sheridan. One man pulled a gun and fire shots and then both men left. About an hour later they returned, and this time Tulsa Police caught them in the parking lot with a gun in the back seat.

Tulsa Police Cpl Chris Chomosh: "Officer reached in the car, grabbed one arm, and started wrestling with him through the sun roof. Due to the close proximity and other factors, officers used a taser one time on him, which about after five seconds he totally complied with officers."

The driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The passenger in the car was arrested without incident. Both men face several charges.

Police are questioning them to see if they are responsible for a rash of recent armed robberies.
