Charges were filed against a Haskell man who led police on an estimated 10-mile vehicle chase.
Brandon Oliver, 22, was charged Friday with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, knowingly concealing and receiving stolen property, leaving the scene of a collision involving injury and eluding a police officer, Tulsa County District Court filings show.
Oliver was also charged with obstructing an officer, larceny of gasoline, driving with a suspended license and failure to stop at a stop sign.
Prosecutors allege Oliver drove off after failing to pay for gas at the Kum & Go at 203 S. Adams Road in Sand Springs Monday evening.
During the pursuit, the blue Chevrolet S-10 pickup Oliver was driving swerved between lanes and blew through a stop sign, according to a police report said.
Police also accused Oliver of "intentionally driving directly into oncoming traffic" throughout the chase and going in excess of 100 mph, the report said.
As the chase reached Tulsa, the truck ran over a curb near 41st street near Rockford Avenue and entered a parking lot before slowing down.
Oliver continued driving and crashed into a Tulsa police car near 41st street and St. Louis Avenue just before 9 p.m., according to the report.
Oliver was apprehended in the 4000 block of St. Louis Avenue after abandoning the truck, police said.
During a search of the truck, officers recovered an AR-15 assault rifle that had been recently reported stolen from Broken Arrow, the report indicated.
A 40-year-old Tulsa police officer involved in the collision was taken to a hospital in good condition with non-life threatening injuries.
Oliver remains in the Tulsa Jail.
