(Guymon Daily Herald)On Aug. 26 at approximately 12:40 am, Troop I Troopers advised Troop J dispatch they were in pursuit of a vehicle that originated from a speeding violation. The pursuit began near Guymon and lasted for several miles, traveling into Texas, before coming back into Oklahoma.

Approximately 30 minutes after the start, units advised they had successfully deployed stop sticks. The suspect vehicle ran over the stop sticks and the vehicle came to a stop.
