An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper spun out a suspect in an SUV, ending a chase that ran through parts of Tulsa Friday afternoon.

Tulsa Police say Mark Jones robbed the Commerce Bank in Utica Square at about 2 p.m. then drove off in a black Ford Expedition. 

Officers saw the SUV near 23rd Street and Southwest Boulevard and the chase began.

When the chase entered I-44 the Oklahoma Highway Patrol joined it. At one point the SUV drove around "stop sticks."  

Video from Osage SkyNews 6 HD showed a trooper using his cruiser to spin the SUV around. The maneuver is called a Tactical Vehicle Intervention or Pursuit Intervention Technique. 

The Ford rolled over onto its top on I-44 just east of the Turner Turnpike gate. Troopers and police then pulled Jones out of the SUV and arrested him.

No one else was hurt.
