DURANT, Okla. (KTEN) — A Bryan County man is behind bars after leading Durant police on a pursuit Wednesday.

Detective Brandon Mitchell said police tried to pull over 49-year-old Jason Shoemake for a traffic violation.

But he failed to pull, over leading police on a chase through Durant. 

"During the pursuit, the suspect ... was throwing methamphetamine out of his vehicle and driving without his license," Mitchell said.

The Bryan County Sheriff's Office and Durant police were involved in the operation.

"Our officer performed a T.V.I., which is a maneuver that we use to bring a vehicle to stop during a pursuit," Mitchell said.

Shoemake is currently in the Bryan County Jail.
