OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City police officers were involved in three high-speed chases throughout the metro overnight.

One chase wrapped up early Thursday morning near N.W. 10th near Portland. Oklahoma City police left this area about 30 min ago. We know one teenager is in custody and they're still looking for another teen.

It was around 3 a.m. police received a 911 call about a suspicious car near N.W. 12th and St. Clair. An officer ran its plates and discovered it to be stolen.

A short pursuit followed before the two teenagers bailed. One was arrested at this dead end street but another is still outstanding. But as we mentioned this isn't the only high speed chase police were on.

Just before 11 p.m. Wednesday, a man wanted on suspicion of distributing narcotics led police on a high speed chase through I-235, I-40 and I-44. Part of the reason he wasn't able to keep on going is because his car overheated and caught fire.

Police arrested the man without incident at I-40 and MLK. At one point speeds reached more than 100 miles per hour.

Another high speed chase started around 1:30 a.m. In this case, a man wanted on a felony refused to pull over for a traffic stop. The suspect took off in a red car near Council Road then got on to I-40, and finally crashed on Reno into a ditch.

But that didn't stop him, he ran off and hid underneath an 18-wheeler and that's where police had to pull him out from under it and took him into custody.

Police have not identified any of the suspects at this time.
