A man who stole a white pick-up truck led Oklahoma police on a wild hour-long police chase before he crashed into a tree and was finally arrested.

The chase started at 10.45am on Monday in southwest Oklahoma City near SW 134th and Rockwell when troopers pulled over 37-year-old Anthony LeBrun for driving a vehicle that was reported stolen.

But when a cop headed towards LeBrun’s car window, he sped off, launching the chase. 

Just a week earlier LeBrun, of Choctaw, had shared a disturbing Facebook status announcing he was going to have the Oklahoma City Police Department shoot and kill him and ranted that no one cared about him. 

LeBurn was taken to Oklahoma City Jail following his arrest

‘[A trooper] attempted to stop the vehicle and was going up to make contact with him and the driver took off,’ Lt. Kera Philippi of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol aid to KFOR. ‘Trooper tried to ahead and pursue’. 

LeBrun zoomed into northwest Oklahoma City driving northbound on Lake Hefner Parkway, weaving through traffic along the I-35 highway, aggressively running red lights, pummeling through fences and hitting trees in the woods. 

Miraculously he only hit one other vehicle in the chase that suffered minor damage. 

In the heated chase troopers fired gunshots at the white truck, but they did not hit LeBrun. 

Finally, he crashed into a tree in a driveway in the White Tail Run neighborhood and was force to bolt on foot, hiding himself in the middle of the woods.

He had crashed and abandoned the car in the driveway of Janie Tigert who said she watched the whole chase play on the news. 

‘I was locked in the basement until I heard officers outside the door, and I was on with the 911 dispatcher,’ Tigert said to the outlet. ‘They wanted me to make sure the doors were lock, so I went upstairs and there outside my kitchen door was the white truck.’
