Larry Dale Young, 40 of Guthrie, took off after police attempted to pull him over at 33rd Street and Interstate 35. In the process of the pursuit according to police, Young was tossing things out of his black, Chevy pickup truck.

The speed of the chase nearly reach 100 mph at around 5:00 p.m. No one was injured during the chase.

Young, who lives in the 900 block of North Ash, is facing several charges, including DUI, attempting to elude, transporting an open container and destruction of evidence.

After searching Young’s truck, police found open beer cans and believe that is what Young was throwing out the vehicle after finding the beer cans along the route of the chase.

Young was arrested after he crashed at Spring Creek Park, located near 15th Street and Air Depot Boulevard, in Edmond.

In July of 2006, Young pleaded guilty to seven different accounts, including unauthorized use of a vehicle, larceny of merchandise from retailer, attempted robbery with dangerous weapon, eluding police officer, resisting an officer, malicious injury to property-under $2500 and driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

  1. Wow, just released from prison and already making horrible choices. I guess serving time didn’t teach him a lesson at all. Maybe he needs to serve his time in a funeral home where people are killed from drunk drivers and high speed chases. Maybe that would be a wake up call. It is disheartening. I’m just thankful that innocent bystanders didn’t get hurt.
