A fugitive reportedly swallowed a bag of meth as he led an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s deputy on a short pursuit in Oklahoma City, on Sunday.

According to the Sheriff’s office, a deputy attempted to pull over a pickup truck that made an illegal lane change near Interstate 40 and Penn. However, the driver refused to completely stop.

The deputy said that driver, 30-year-old Noah Mark Walters, would pull over and then drive off until he got to S.W. 15th and S. Agnew.

Walters was arrested when he finally stopped. While being booked into jail, the deputy said he noticed that Walters was sweating profusely and shaking.

Walters then admitted to swallowing a “bag of meth” during the short pursuit with the deputy. He told the deputy he had swallowed up to two grams of meth.

Walters was taken to the hospital. After he was cleared by medical staff, he was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on complaints of obstruction, eluding, and destruction of evidence. He is being held on $6,000 bail.

According to the Sheriff’s office, Walters had active warrants in Oklahoma and Cleveland Counties.
