TULSA — A man was arrested earlier this week after Tulsa police say he admitted to working with a Mexican cartel.

Police conducted a traffic stop on the man, Patrick McClintock, 37, on Monday at about 5 p.m. in the 1500 block of East 61st Street after they said he was not wearing proper eye protection on his motorcycle.

Police say the man refused to identify himself, and gave officers the driver license belonging to someone else.

After police told the man he was under arrest, McClintock "took a fighting stance," police said, and refused to comply with commands.

Police say he had a suspended driver license, city warrants and no insurance. The motorcycle he was on had been stolen during the burglary of a storage unit, according to police.

The police report said that McClintock admitted that he works with a Mexican cartel and does fraud and narcotic activity for them. Police say the man is a "flight risk."
