A man was arrested Wednesday after nearly crashing into an Oklahoma County deputy's vehicle outside an Oklahoma City school, authorities said.
The deputy was leaving Santa Fe South Schools, 4712 South Santa Fe Ave., when the suspect nearly hit his vehicle head-on, a sheriff's department spokesman said.
The deputy began chasing the suspect's vehicle, which wrecked at SE 56 and Shields. The suspect ran from the car and was arrested after a foot pursuit.
He was identified as Nathaniel Sims, 40. He was taken to the Oklahoma County jail on complaints that included eluding a deputy and driving with a suspended license.
