A man leads Tulsa Police on a chase with his baby in the car.

It started when officers responded to a call about shots fired in the 1200 block of South 83rd East Avenue. When officers arrived, the driver of one car sped off.

The chase ended a few minutes later right where it started. It turns out the car was stolen last week from a car lot. The driver was arrested for eluding police, possession of a stolen vehicle, resisting arrest and endangerment of a minor.

His 1 year old son was in the car and ‘not’ in a child seat. The boy was given to a grandparent.

Officers didn't find any weapons or shell casings in the vehicle. They are still investigating.

And another chase overnight, but this one was a foot chase and it ended with one person in the Tulsa County jail.

The man was arrested in Mingo Creek after he ran from a closed bar at 11th and Mingo. Tulsa Police received an alarm call from a liquor store next door and found the glass smashed.

The man was outside when officers arrived and he ran.
