Bixby man with 9 DUIs scheduled for court arraignment in Tulsa County Tuesday

TULSA - A Bixby man who has nine DUI convictions and was arrested in November for leading police on a high-speed chase that resulted in yet another DUI arrest will again have his day in court Tuesday.

Thomas Supernaw, 45, was driving with a broken tail light in early November when he made an illegal turn, ignored an officer who tried pulling him over and eventually led police on a chase.

According to court documents, that chase exceeded speeds of 110 mph.

Supernaw faces charges of DUI, eluding a police officer, driving without a license, failure to pay taxes, improper tail or tag lamps and failure to signal. His arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in a Tulsa County courtroom.

Supernaw's history with drinking-related offenses dates back 25 years. In 1988, within a two-month span, Supernaw was convicted of impaired driving and driving under the influence. He has seven convictions since then.

Supernaw also has multiple convictions for eluding police and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

According to state statute, only DUI sentences served within 10 years of a person's latest DUI charge can add up to felony counts against that individual.

In the case of Supernaw, according to court documents, his latest charge is his third felony DUI charge in the last 10 years. If convicted, Supernaw could see prison time.
