Deputies tell us a man who tried to get away during a traffic stop hit speeds topping 100 miles an hour.

Sheriff's deputies caught 23-year-old Robert Kinter just before three this morning near Pine and Memorial.

Captain John Bryan with the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office says Kinter was arrested for suspicion of DUI and inside the front of his pickup truck they found a case of beer with many empty bottles.

Deputies say that's likely the reason that Kinter tried to get away during that traffic stop.

Deputies and Tulsa police setup stop sticks at Pine and Mingo, and Apache and Mingo.

The Captain said Kinter hit both of those, blowing out three of his tires.

After hitting the sticks Kinter had no choice but to pull over within half a mile of hitting the sticks.

FOX23 cameras were rolling as deputies handcuffed Kinter and put him in the back of the patrol car.

Kinter wasn't hurt.
Deputies chased after Kinter almost half an hour, on and off I-44 and Highway 169, hitting speeds above 100 miles an hour.

On top of DUI, the captain says he'll also probably face charges for eluding officers, speeding, and other traffic violations.
