Traffic Stop Leads to Police Chase

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla -  A late night traffic stop for reckless driving sends Lawton Police on a chase through town with speeds reaching more than 80 miles per hour before the suspect was taken into custody.

Lawton Police said they attempted to pull a truck over that was driving out of control near the intersection of Sheridan Road and SW "C" Avenue just before 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

The driver refused to stop running multiple stop signs and red lights.

The driver also barely missed hitting an occupied vehicle at a stop sign near SW 22nd Street and Gore Boulevard.

The pursuit continued for several miles at varied speeds through city streets finally ending in the driveway of a home in the 5700 block of NW Oak Avenue.

After a short struggle, police were able to arrest the driver.

Shawn Michael Frizzell, Jr. was charged with reckless driving, eluding a police office, resisting arrest, and driving without a license.
