Tulsa man pushes driver out of Ford F-250 during police pursuit

Tulsa, Okla. – A Tulsa County man was arrested on the evening of May 25th after a police pursuit was initiated due to driving with a fake tag.

Officers noticed the white Ford F-250 at a gas station located at Admiral and Harvard.

Tulsa police attempted to stop the truck, but the driver decided to take off instead.

Shortly after the pursuit was initiated, the driver stopped, and officers say they “observed the front seat passenger, Ethan Ball, push the woman driving out of the truck” and then took off again. (Tulsa PD’s Facebook)

The chase required the Tulsa Police helicopter to get involved in the pursuit.

Ball finally stopped at Harvard and Virgin and decided to make a run for it.

That’s when Tulsa police’s police K9 stepped in and did not have any problem at all apprehending Ball.

Ball was taken into custody and received multiple charges, including  

  • Failing to signal a right turn
  • Robbery by force/fear 1st Degree AFCF
  • Eluding AFCF
  • Obstructing Justice
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Unauthorized use of Motor Vehicle
  • Larceny of Automobile

Ball’s court dates are set for June 1st and 2nd with bonds of over $100,000. He is, however, being held without bond on the automobile charges.

Tulsa Tales from the TPD blotter did not mention anything about the original driver.
