A woman leads Tuttle police on a high speed chase, without a tire. It happened just before 10 p.m. Wednesday, and Tuttle Police dash cam was rolling on the whole thing.

As the truck threw sparks down on State Highway 37, Tuttle police dispatch was also getting lit up.

“There is a guy driving his car down the road with a flaming wheel!” One caller said.

“We’re on highway 37 coming into Tuttle and there is a truck driving on a rim,” another caller said.

“Yes, we have an officer on the way right now,” the dispatcher said.

Officers said 25-year-old Ariel Fish was westbound, going way over the speed limit and driving without a front passenger side tire. After authorities turned on their lights and sirens, they said she sped up to 85 miles per hour.

Dash cam footage showed she finally pulled over after two miles and officers approached the truck, guns drawn. Fish got out with her hands up, got down on the ground and officers put her in handcuffs.

And police said her story was a little confusing.

The affidavit said she told officers she’s just picked up a pizza at a Domino’s on S. Western Avenue in Oklahoma City and was trying to get to Knight’s Inn nearby. But she got lost along the way.

Police said she also claimed she was in a hurry because she thought she had a flat, but didn't see the sparks, didn't see the police lights and didn't hear the police sirens. But she did have pizza in her truck.

And even though police did not find drugs on her, investigators believed she was under the influence based on her altered behavior.

She agreed to the state drug test and after completing that at the hospital, she went to the Grady County Jail. She also had a felony arrest warrant out of Oklahoma County.
