QUAPAW, OKLAHOMA -

On the evening of 5-17-2015, at approximately 10:44 PM, Ottawa County Deputy Sheriff Jesse Krewson was patrolling in the area of Quapaw, Oklahoma. Krewson passed a vehicle that was heading North into Quapaw on Oklahoma State Highway 69, and believed that the vehicle was one that was reported stolen out of Greene County Missouri, that had been broadcast earlier in Krewson's shift by dispatch. The vehicle was a 1965 Ford Mustang, and was occupied by the driver (age: 45 of Mt. Vernon, MO.) and one passenger, Patricia Garrison (age: 44 of Mt. Vernon, MO.).

Deputy Krewson activated his emergency lights and sirens near Quapaw, Oklahoma, and the driver refused to stop his vehicle. Krewson pursued the vehicle north from Oklahoma into Baxter Springs, Kansas, and then East into, Missouri for a brief time. Krewson reported that speeds during the pursuit reached a maximum of 80mph. The driver turned onto Interstate 44, just South of Downstream Casino, and drove back toward Miami, OK. During the pursuit Krewson was joined by 2 other Ottawa County Deputies, Officers with the Baxter Springs Police Department, Deputies with the Cherokee County Kansas Sheriff's Department, and a Quapaw Tribal Marshall.

As the driver neared the Miami, Oklahoma exit on I-44, Officer Andrew Hanson, with the Miami Police Department was waiting near the exit with spike strips. Hanson deployed the strips, successfully disabling all 4 tires on the Mustang. The driver exited at Miami, and drove west on Steve Owens Boulevard, then onto Elm St. and then onto Rockdale Blvd. The Mustang came to a stop in the intersection of Rockdale Blvd., and Mckinley St. The driver put his car into reverse and drove it backwards in an Ottawa County Patrol vehicle, causing minor damage. The suspect attempted to drive away, but the Mustang was unable to operate. Officers surrounded the vehicle and ordered the driver to exit the vehicle. As officers tried to remove the male suspect from the vehicle he attempted to close the door to the vehicle, and he attempted to escape out of the passenger's side of the vehicle. The driver exited the passenger's side of the vehicle, causing his passenger, Garrison to be knocked to the ground. A brief struggle ensued in which fleeing male driver cursed officers, and resisted being placed into handcuffs. At one point the driver kicked the Quapaw Marshall's K9, which was deployed.

After the detention of both subjects it was learned that Patricia Garrison had full extradition warrants out of Greene County Missouri. Found in the vehicle, and on the ground outside the vehicle were small amounts of methamphetamine, and marijuana, along with glass smoking pipes. A small amount of Marijuana was also found in Patricia Garrison's purse.

Both suspects were transported to the Integris Baptist Regional Health Center for minor cuts and abrasions, which were incurred during arrest. Both were released, and transported to the Ottawa County Jail for booking. 

Garrison's charges are as follows:

  • Possession of Methamphetimine
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Also held for Greene County Missouri warrants

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office would like to thank the following agencies for their assistance in the incident.

Quapaw Tribal Marshalls, Quapaw Police Department, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Cherokee County Kansas Sheriff's Department, and the Miami Police Department, Miami Fire Department.
