OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – A man was arrested after a pursuit with police ended with him crashing his car into an unoccupied home Tuesday night, according to Oklahoma’s News4.

After requesting his driver’s license, Jarvis took off.

Police pursued him for a short time. The pursuit ended at S. Portland Avenue when Jarvis lost control of his vehicle and crashed into an occupied house.

Jarvis fled the scene of the accident but was arrested soon after.
