TULSA -- One suspect is in custody after police say he stole a car and led them on a chase early Thursday morning.

Police arrested Derek Jacobson, 32, on multiple complaints including possession of a stolen vehicle and eluding police.

Officers say Jacobson stole a Toyota Camry near 13th and Lewis around 12:40 AM.

They say the driver tried to lose officers in the pursuit by switching off all his lights while driving.

Jacobson later wrecked the car near 1st and Elgin. Police say two people then bailed out of the car and tried to flee the scene on foot.

Officers arrested Jacobson after a K9 bit him on his arm. The passenger managed to get away.

Paramedics treated the suspect on scene for the dog bite.
