A man in Grady County, Oklahoma is in police custody after leading authorities on a high-speed chase with his infant son in the car.
Grady County police officers were on the lookout for Stephen Tennery and his 9-month-old son Wednesday afternoon, when Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Chris West spotted the man driving on the H.E. Bailey Turnpike. Police officers attempted to stop Tennery but were unsuccessful. He was later spotted, shortly before 2:00 p.m., driving erratically on U.S. 62 at speeds in excess of 100 mph.
The chase ended when Tennery crashed his pickup truck on a rural gravel road. The truck flipped, but Tennery attempted to escape on foot with his infant son. Troopers were able to take him into custody and recover the child.
The 9-month-old was transported to a nearby hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
