TULSA - Two men are in custody after leading Tulsa police on a high-speed chase early Monday.
It began in south Tulsa and ended near 36st Street North and Osage Drive.
Officers responding to an intrusion alarm at a gas station around 4 a.m. say the suspects drove off in a Ford pickup at a high rate of speed and led them on a chase that went near Turley and Sperry before turning south and ending in a construction zone on Osage Drive.
State troopers took over the chase when it moved onto the highways.
Authorities say they employed spike strips during the pursuit but the suspects managed to avoid them. One trooper tried to use a pit maneuver but the driver of the pickup tried to run him off the road, authorities say.
The chase lasted almost 30 minutes and reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.
Officers say two men were in the car. One man was arrested on charges of attempted second-degree burglary and felony eluding. He was transported to a local hospital with a bloody nose. The second man is still being questioned.
The names of the suspects have not been released.
