CHOCTAW COUNTY, OK-- A Hugo man allegedly led law enforcement on a chase over the weekend, injuring a Choctaw County Deputy.

Hugo Police say around 1:30 Saturday morning, an officer noticed 53 year old James Chumley take off running into a wooded area.

The officer started chasing Chumley and called for back up due to recent break ins in that area. A Choctaw County Deputy found Chumley in the 800 block of North 3rd Street, and after a brief altercation he was arrested.

The deputy suffered injuries to his ribs and was taken to Choctaw Memorial for treatment.

Chumley is being held in Choctaw County Jail.
