LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Police tried to stop a driver for some unusual driving habits, but he wasn’t going to go down without a chase.

Just before midnight Monday, an officer was behind a 2002 maroon Dodge Caravan that was slowly headed northbound on Northwest 13th Street near Williams Avenue. The Caravan continued to drive slowly and stop at each intersection, but sat at Northwest 13th Street and Smith Avenue for about two minutes before slowly driving off.

The officer turned his emergency lights on in an attempt to get the driver to stop, but he kept creeping along through the neighborhood. The Caravan made a few more stops and at one point the officer started to get out of his vehicle, but the Caravan continued on. This continued until a woman fell out of the Caravan near Northwest 14th Street and Bessie Avenue. The officer stayed with the woman and other officers went after the Caravan.

The chase eventually reached speeds of around 45 mph on Northwest Smith Avenue and the Caravan started to drive through stop signs. The driver, Lashawn Green, eventually got out of the Caravan at Northwest Floyd and Prentice and started running.

Green was told to stop, but jumped a fence and continued to run. He jumped another fence, stumbled and fell. The pursing office was able to catch up to Green and put him in handcuffs.

Green was taken to the Lawton City Jail and was booked for resisting an officer, reckless driving, eluding police and driving under revocation.

Green was also arrested in February after he came out of an EZ-Go bathroom, holding himself and asked for a phone charger.
