TULSA – After being chased by officers and refusing to cooperate, one man is finally in police custody.

Justin Trammel, a wanted felon accused of shooting with intent to kill, attempted to elude police officers and led them on a chase on Jan. 21.

Officers pursued Trammel for several miles until he stopped at E. 46th Street North and N. Denver Avenue.

Tulsa police say Trammel refused to obey orders given by the officers and as a result, a K-9 officer was deployed, along with a Taser.

It took around six to eight officers in addition to subdue Trammel, in addition to being bitten by the K-9 officer.

After being treated for his wounds, Trammel was transported to the Tulsa County Jail to be booked on several felony charges.
