Man leads Oklahoma County sheriff's deputy on chase, gets out of car holding two cats
After short chase, a man emerges from his car holding two cats. Ronald Varselona, 62, was arrested on complaints of attempting to elude, speeding and resisting arrest.
An Oklahoma County sheriff's deputy got a surprise Wednesday when a motorist he chased through the far northern part of the county stopped and got out of his car holding two cats.
Ronald Varselona, 62, was arrested on complaints of attempting to elude, speeding and resisting arrest.
Sheriff's spokesman Mark Myers said the deputy was working traffic in the 400 block of W Waterloo Road when he noticed a speeder. The deputy, who was on a motorcycle, tried to pull the car over, but the driver would not stop.
The deputy, Cpl. Matt Daves, wrote in a report that at one point during the chase, he pulled alongside the car and yelled through the open driver's side window for the driver to pull over. Daves said the driver shook his head no several times and continued driving.
The driver eventually pulled into a driveway in the 2900 block of E Country Oaks Drive and stopped.
Daves then told the driver to show his hands, but he refused. The man got out of the car holding two cats wrapped in a coat.
