Suspected drunk driver leads Madill police on high speed chase

Madill, Okla. Madill police spokesman Donny Raley says a woman called the police just before 10 p.m. Tuesday to report her ex-boyfriend, Andra McQueen, was parked outside the home where she was staying.

"He was texting her some things that he wanted to hurt himself and trying to put the guilt trip on her to entice her to come outside," Raley said.

Officers drove to the neighborhood, spotted McQueen, turned on their emergency lights and he took off.

"As he was leaving the area his car did edge over towards one of our officers and pushed him off the side of the road," Raley said. "That's when the second officer joined in the pursuit."

Dash cam footage shows McQueen was driving toward Kingston on Hwy 70, reaching speeds over 100 miles an hour.

McQueen, who Raley says was drunk, lost control and drove off the roadway - flipping his car and crashing.

"We did find an open container of alcohol and there was also a loaded handgun," Raley said.

Raley says this isn't McQueen's first run-in with police, in fact, less than a week before this incident they were called by the same woman who claimed McQueen physically assaulted her and burglarized her home.

Officers were gathering evidence to push domestic assault charges on McQueen at the time the pursuit happened.

"I know a lot of people are scared but they do need to report any kind of domestic violence because there are resources that can help and certainly we want to be there to help," Raley said.

Victims of domestic violence and abuse can call a crisis number for the Family Shelter of Southern Oklahoma at 580-226-6424.
