CHICKASHA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man they say led them on a high-speed chase in a pickup truck with his baby inside.
Capt. Chris West of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Chickasha police alerted troopers Wednesday afternoon that they were trying to locate Stephen Tennery and his 9-month-old child.
West says police were unsuccessful in stopping Tennery on the H.E. Bailey Turnpike, but a trooper spotted him on U.S. 62 about 1:43 p.m., driving erratically and at speeds estimated at 100 mph.
West says the truck exited onto Oklahoma 39, then onto a Grady County road where it crashed.
He says Tennery ran away with the baby but was found by troopers in some thicket a few minutes later.
West says the baby was taken away from the scene by ambulance.
