A man from Vera leads a Tulsa County Sheriff's Deputy on a high speed chase Saturday night into Washington County and back, almost runs over children, drives into the pursuit car, crashes out, then surrenders with methamphetamine and an unregistered handgun inside his car.
23-year-old Colton Lee Marshall was driving a green Toyota Camry westbound on 166th Street North around 6:00 p.m. when a TCSO officer attempted to pull him over due to a burnt out break light. Marshall sped up to 80 miles per hour (mph) north into Washington County, where he almost ran over two children.
With permission from the Washington County Sheriff's Office, the TCSO officer pursued Marshall until Marshall make a U-turn on a gravel road near 3950 Road – scraping the TCSO patrol car as he proceeded south back into Tulsa County at 90 mph.
In the 11200 block of 166th Street North, Marshall's car skidded sideways into a stop sign and a ditch. Marshall then rammed the officer's patrol car with his bumper before trying to flee the scene.
The TCSO officer ordered Marshall out of his Toyota at gunpoint and successfully handcuffed him.
After reading Marshall his Miranda rights, the officer removed from the suspect's vehicle a Taurus PT 738 handgun with two bullets loaded inside the magazine and one bullet fired from the chamber. The serial number had been scratched off, scribbled over with a black ink pen, and covered with black electrical tape.
The arresting officer then removed from Marshall's car a small plastic case containing a white crystal substance proven to be methamphetamine through Narco-pouch 923 testing and a small metal spoon believed to be used to process the meth for hypodermic injection.
Marshall was discovered to have two active felony warrants in Tulsa County.
He was checked out at the scene by Collinsville EMS and declined transport to an area hospital. He was then taken to David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center.
Marshall has been charged with two counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm with serial numbers removed while in the commission of a felony, operating a motor vehicle without required equipment, eluding after formal conviction of a felony, possession of a schedule two controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and leaving the scene of an injury accident.
He was booked Sunday morning just before 1:30 a.m. His bond is set at over $200,000.
