Man records Facebook Live video during Oklahoma City police pursuit

Oklahoma City police and several other law enforcement agencies were involved in a auto chase with a suspect in a stolen vehicle Friday, according to Oklahoma's News 4.

Local news reports say the truck was stolen from someone's driveway a week ago.

The aunt of an Oklahoma man who took police on a wild chase that he broadcasted live on social media Friday says she begged him to stop.

For almost three hours, police chased 25 year-old Brenton Hager, who went on Facebook Live during the part of the pursuit. He said he saw the chase on TV, spotted the suspect, and made a decision to follow him.

He stopped at one point to pull the tool box from the bed of the truck when a civilian with a firearm shot out the suspects back tire.

"Thought well let's see if we can shoot out that left rear tire and maybe that would slow him down", Wright told KOCO 5.

Hager continued driving on the rim, spinning broadies in a field.

The chase got very tense when a police vehicle hit the pickup nearly sending it into a news van. The chase finally ended when the man backed into a stock pond. Unable to get out, the man began running on foot.

That's when police tazed the suspect before leaving him off of the field in handcuffs.

Jones noticed the truck on the road Friday morning and called police.
