A Vera man is being held on multiple felony complaints, including assault and battery with a deadly weapon, after reportedly nearly striking two children with a car while fleeing from Tulsa deputies on Saturday.
Deputies attempted to stop Colton Lee Marshall, 23, just before 7 p.m. near 9700 E. 166th St. North after noticing a brake light was out in the Toyota Camry he was driving, according to Marshall’s arrest report.
Marshall continued driving, crossed into Washington County and came close to running over two children, the report said. Washington County authorities granted the deputy permission for Tulsa County to continue the pursuit.
During the chase, the Camry reached speeds of 90 mph, the report said. Marshall scraped the deputy’s vehicle while attempting to turn around, ran over a street sign and almost struck a telephone pole before the car to rest in a ditch, the report states.
He then exited the car at gunpoint and was arrested.
A gun, bullets, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia allegedly were found during a search of the Camry, the arresting deputy said in the report.
Marshall is being held at the Tulsa Jail for assault and battery with a deadly weapon, eluding, leaving the scene of an injury accident, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm with the serial number removed, drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor traffic violation and applications to revoke previous deferred sentences. His bond is set at $235,350.
He was sentenced to one year in prison and three years parole after pleading guilty to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and drug possession in separate cases filed in 2007.
