OKLAHOMA CITY – A man is in custody after attempting to drive away in a patrol car during a traffic stop.

In the player above is footage that eventually led to a high speed chase in Canadian County with Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Benjamin Henson was pulled over for following too closely. It’s after the trooper asks Henson’s permission to search his car that an interesting scene unfolds.
