BIXBY, Okla. - A man is behind bars after ramming a police cruiser, almost hitting an officer and leading police on a high-speed chase.

Bixby police said an officer pulled over Timothy Patton, 29, for speeding near Stadium and Memorial early Tuesday morning. When the officer asked Patton to get out of the car, police said he took off and rammed a police cruiser.

Police said the officer who made the traffic stop managed to avoid getting hurt, but his cruiser was badly damaged.

Police eventually stopped Patton on the Broken Arrow Expressway near 145th East Avenue.

Police said the driver had no license. They said Patton reportedly took the car from some people at a party at a Tulsa hotel.

Paramedics checked out a female passenger, and police released her from the scene.
