ROGERS COUNTY, Okla. (KTUL) — The Rogers County Sheriff's Office says a suspect who was accused of trying to run over officers during a chase is now in custody.
Sheriff Scott Walton confirms Chad Anderson was taken into custody Wednesday and admitted to the hospital. Anderson is still getting his injuries evaluated, but he will be booked into the Rogers County Jail once he's released.
Shelby Stambeck, who was identified as Anderson's girlfriend, was arrested for harboring a fugitive after deputies found Anderson at her residence and was booked into the Tulsa County Jail.
The sheriff's office and the Tulsa Police Department searched for Anderson, who was in a stolen car and almost hit two deputies during a high-speed chase Sunday, for over a day. Deputies had spotted a car near the Hard Rock Casino that had outstanding traffic warrants prior to the chase. The driver refused to stop and led them on a 15-mile chase that went north on 193rd East Ave and east on Red Bud Drive.
Things got dangerous when two deputies set up a road block near Tiger Switch Road.
Sheriff Walton said the suspect came close to hitting the deputies and missed one by about a foot, when he got a good opportunity to stop and end the danger to them. The deputies fired numerous shots at the car and Walton said at least one may have hit its mark, because there was what appeared to be some blood in the car.
