Suspect arrested after chase, standoff in Atoka Co.

ATOKA COUNTY, OK - A high speed police chase through Atoka County Wednesday night ended in a standoff.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Carl Lee Muennink was pulled over in a Jeep Wrangler during a routine traffic stop in Stringtown when he fled on U.S. Highway 69, leading officers on a high speed chase through Atoka and Tushka. When he reached Caney, spike strips were deployed.

Muennink was arrested after a brief standoff. He now sits in the Atoka County Jail. OHP says he could be facing up to two felony charges.

"He could be facing attempting to allude, running a road block, and could be reckless driving," Lt. Scott Hampton of the Oklahoma highway Patrol said.

No injuries were reported.

    He isn't from Oklahoma dude, they get up here where we have good cops and they get caught, we get one or two of these geniuses from up north and down south each week, and they never get away, there's only one road and we all got radios. Human rats with nowhere to hide.

      No...we are all uneducated outlaws and rednecks, north of the Red River! On occasion, I will read a feed from a news story. I have to laugh at the comments made towards Oklahoma residents. I find it interesting that you rarely read a post on here, from someone in Oklahoma demeaning to Texans. I'm just glad we Okies have been raised to be humble. BTW...if I were to make such an ignorant comment, I'd want to be "anonymous", as well.
