A Tulsa Police Department patrol officer noticed a suspicious vehicle around 12:30 a.m. Friday. The gray volkswagen car appeared to be trying to elude the officer's line of sight and then led police on a pursuit.

Before a TPD officer even had a chance to try and make a traffic stop, the car sped away at a high rate of speed and straight through stop signs, police said.

The pursuit went from the area of 36th and Harvard in midtown to 73rd and St. Louis, and got to speeds of up to 65-70 miles per hour.

Around 61st and Riverside, the TPD managed to get stop sticks on the vehicle, flattening 3 of its tires.

Near 71st, the suspect reportedly threw out two bags, one containing about a quarter pound of loose-leaf pot. The other was an unknown powdery substance.

The vehicle, partially disabled, continued on until stopping near the driver's home (where TPD had officers waiting thanks to the tag information) and the driver and the passenger were taken into custody.

Those two suspects were identified as Kiel Kirkland (driver) and Casey Adkins. Kirkland was arrested on complaints of possession of marijuana, eluding police and DUI and Adkins was arrested for possession of marijuana and public intoxication.
