Man Arrested After A Five Hour Standoff

Posted: Updated:

A Tulsa man is behind bars after he lead police on a high speed chase and then resisted arrest.

It started Thursday afternoon at about 5:45 p.m. in North Tulsa.  A TPD officer tried to pull over 24-year-old Jerimiah Seals for speeding.  He refused to stop and lead police on a high speed chase that lasted about five minutes.  Seals then made an abrupt stop, fleeing on foot leaving behind his screaming wife and three kids. 

Seals ran into a home that police believe belong to his relative near 800 N. Winston Ave.  When TPD got to the house, the people inside the house came out, but Seals did not.  A Tulsa Police Special Operations team set off chemical agents to help get Seals out of the house.  Eventually, officers made contact with Seals and convinced him to leave the home just before 11 p.m.  

TPD took Seals into custody and he now faces three charges of child endangerment, one charge of eluding, one charge of no driver's license, and resisting arrest.
