The Oklahoma Highway Patrol arrested a Sand Springs man after a chase that included almost running over a trooper.

OHP arrested Teddy Cravatt on Sunday afternoon after Trooper Chris West spotted Cravatt driving a stolen car on I-244 around 2pm on Sunday. According to the arrest report West attempted to pull Cravatt over but Cravatt drove away. West followed with assistance from the Sand Springs Police.

West says Cravatt got onto State Highway 97 and then took the 129th exit and sped through neighborhoods. OHP says Cravatt pulled over and tried to climb out of the window.

According to the arrest report West made contact with the driver and tried to get him out of the car, physically holding him. Reports say Cravatt then climbed back in the window and tried to drive away with West still trying to pull him out of the car. West says he let go of Cravatt because he feared for her life.

Reports show West got in his car and followed again and after a short chase Cravatt tried to run on foot but West caught up with him, Cravatt refused to give up, but West got control and took him into custody.

Cravatt faces charges of unauthorized use of motor vehicle, attempting to elude, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of meth, possession of paraphernalia, driving under suspension, no seatbelt and resisting arrest.
