By  | 

DURANT, Okla. (KXII)- Following a police chase in Bryan County Tuesday, which involved five different law enforcement agencies, Timothy Dewayne West is now facing felony charges of assault and battery on a peace officer and eluding police.

West is also facing three misdemeanors which includes a DUI, driving on a suspended license, and an assault on a police officer, when West swerved into a Colbert police officer.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. Scott Hampton says all five agencies worked together to make a peaceful end to the chase.

"Due to all the agencies involved, which was Calera, Colbert, Bryan County Sheriff's office, Durant police department, and one of our guys that our pursuit came to a peaceful ending but that is ultimately our goal," said Hampton.

Following the chase, West was taken to a local hospital for an arm injury unrelated to the chase, but was treated and released.

The Calera police officer who was injured in the chase was also treated for non-life threatening injuries and released from the hospital.

"If it wasn't for your Calera PD's and other agencies out there working, the area would not be as safe as it is," said Lt. Hampton.
