Southbound Interstate 44 was shut down early Monday evening after a brief police pursuit across southwest Oklahoma City turned into a standoff -- and now an investigation.

The driver of a metallic Lincoln Continental was in his vehicle for about 30 minutes before he got out of the vehicle. As he was putting on clothes and a jacket, officers hit him with a bean bag from a bean bag shotgun.

Police tell News 9 that the pursuit started at a liquor store in the 4800 block of Northwest 23rd Street after police spotted a vehicle involved in a possible kidnapping. 

The biggest impact from this incident by 6 p.m. Monday was traffic, which has been snarled throughout the rush hour along I-44 southbound.
