TPD: Man drives on River Parks, leads officers on pursuit

TULSA - Tulsa Police say they arrested a man officers saw driving on the River Parks before leading them on a lengthy pursuit.

Officers tell 2NEWS they saw a man in his early 20s on the trail near 56th and Riverside.

When they tried to stop him, they say he tried speeding away.

Roughly 20 minutes later, investigators say the man crashed near Admiral and Highway 169.

"He had too much speed going through the turn, he hit some sand at the corner and he just couldn't make the turn and he wrecked out," said officer Shawn King.

Officers say the man will likely be arrested on several counts, including DUI.
