A man is behind bars after wrecking the stolen vehicle he was driving while leading police on a high-speed chase.
Dustin Virgil Hamman, 18, of Poteau, was arrested Tuesday evening on charges of larceny of an automobile, eluding police and running a road block stemming from the incident.
Hamman was reportedly driving a stolen Mercedes SUV that he had taken from a Poteau business when he was spotted by Poteau police officers.
The chase began on North Broadway and traveled through residential streets, ending when Hamman ran off the roadway on North Witte Street and fled on foot.
Hamman was later arrested at a residence on Pearl Street.
Hamman is being held in the LeFlore County Detention Center on a $20,000 bail.
