OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City police spent much of the night chasing a man on the northeast side wanted on several warrants.

Police said the suspect wasn't giving up. Officers happened to be in the area of 13th and Classen investigating a burglary when a white Ford Mustang just peeled out of there. Officers tried to pull him over for speeding, but he just kept going.

Officers said speeds got up to 85 mph on the northeast side of town. Eventually, they used stop sticks which blew out his tires near 4th and Bryant. But the suspect took off from the car and ran into some thick, heavy bush near the Oklahoma River. That's when AirOne stayed above him and eventually they got their guy, who was a muddy mess once they got him.

The officers on the ground simply wouldn't give up despite the conditions they were facing.

"Officers had a difficult time getting in there. You could only see a couple of feet in front of you. And there are no clear trails back there, it's natural growing brush," Officer Jeff Dutton said.

The suspect, later identified as 42-year-old Carlos Walton, is no stranger to the law. Police said the car wasn't stolen, but he is facing traffic charges and had several warrants on him ranging from misdemeanors to felonies.
