LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- A wanted man led U.S Marshals and members of Lawton's Special Operations Unit on a chase this morning near I-44 and Gore.

It began when law enforcement tried to pull over two different vehicles for the illegal use of a service drive. They say one of the vehicles belonged to a Ian Baswell who had a warrant out for his arrest.

Police say when the vehicles pulled over to stop, a passenger inside the red truck jumped out and ran into a field. Law enforcement gave chase and cut off Laurie Tatum Road where they believed the man was headed.

Turns out they were right, and when the man emerged, they were able to take him into custody. Authorities say they're just relieved the situation ended peacefully.

"We're just happy that everybody is safe and that everybody involved is able to go home today," said Sgt. Timothy Jenkins, the LPD Public Information Officer.

We're still waiting to learn the identity of the man who was caught. Police say two women were also involved. No word on if they were arrested.
