TULSA, OK – A man is facing charges after he attempted to elude a police chase and abandoned a stolen vehicle in Tulsa early this morning, according to News on 6.

The chase wound through Tulsa and Creek Counties, and only stopped when Naylor got out of the car and ran across the highway, leaving the vehicle behind.

He was eventually apprehended by authorities and is facing multiple charges, including eluding police, possession of a firearm by a felon, and possession of a stolen vehicle.
