Three people were arrested after leading police on a wild chase through the metro.

It started out with a woman behind the wheel.

"Somewhere on Pennsylvania the vehicle pulled to a stop, and the female driver exited and ran from the vehicle," Oklahoma City Police Captain Dee Patty said.

Police quickly arrested Maria Moore, but the chase was far from over. Wayne Kalbaugh got behind the wheel and took off again, blowing through a busy interaction during five o'clock traffic.

He then took a swift right turn before making a sudden U-turn and then headed down, not one, but two dead ends.

The reverse lights came on, and then Kalbaugh put the car in drive and gunned it right through a fence at the end of a dead end street.

He got out with his hands up and then took off running with his hands still up as officers chased right behind him.

But his foot escape didn't last long. He ran right into a National Guard facility where two military members helped police tackle him to the ground.

What then played out on live television caught a lot of viewers' attention. The man was hit about seven times. However, police said he did have several guns and was armed with a knife during the struggle.

"Any use of force that might have occurred will be investigated," Patty said.

A bomb squad unit was called to the scene after police said they found a hand grenade inside the car. Three people were arrested including Moore, Kalbaugh and a passenger, Victoria Kalbaugh.
