LAWTON, Okla._ A man is in jail after crashing his car into a field while trying to escape arrest.

The chase ended in a field just south of Lucky Lane and Gore Boulevard in east Lawton. Police say the chase started on I-44 after police attempted to stop the driver for multiple traffic violations. After exiting onto Gore, the driver turned east before turning on onto Lucky Lane, where he jumped a curb and drove through a field before becoming trapped in a ditch. Police say the man ran into a thick wooded area, and was arrested just a few hundred feet from where he abandoned his car.
