High-speed chase ends with Muldrow resident charged with eluding police

Monday, February 4, 2024 - A Muldrow man was arrested Feb. 21 and charged with eluding/attempting to elude a police officer.

Tyler Scott, 40, could face up to one year in prison, a fine of $100-2,000 or both. He was also charged with four misdemeanors: unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia; driving with a canceled/suspended/revoked licensed; failure to maintain insurance or security; and operating a vehicle with expired/improper tag.

On Feb. 21, a sheriff’s deputy was traveling eastbound on old Highway 64 when he spotted a white motorcycle following another vehicle too closely. He activated his emergency lights to conduct a traffic stop.

The motorcycle, driven by Tyler, came to a stop on the side of the road. The deputy instructed the driver to pull into the parking lot for safety.

The driver took off at a high speed and the deputy began a pursuit of the suspect. They traveled north on 4780 Road into Roland city limits. Tyler ran a red light at speeds upward of 80 mph, passing several vehicles and crossing into the opposite lane. He turned east on Dorcus, still hitting speeds of up to 100 mph in a 25-mph zone.

Tyler then turned south on Taylor Drive. As the deputy turned south on Taylor, he saw that the motorcycle had crashed. The deputy exited his patrol car and ordered Tyler to get on the ground.

Tyler was handcuffed and transported to the emergency room, where he refused treatment for his injuries.

When asked why he ran, Tyler said he did not have a license and his tags were expired. Tyler was transported to the Sequoyah County jail.
