Enid Police Department dash cam video shows officers pursuing a stolen forklift in downtown Enid.
As featured on
A 23-year-old Enid man was arrested Tuesday morning while leading Enid police on a pursuit in a 15-ton Skytrak forklift through downtown Enid as traffic began picking up during morning commutes.
The man told police he hoped the forklift would help him see his child, and he didn't stop for officers because he knew had a warrant and would go to prison for 10 years and not get to see his child, according to police.
A man who lead police on a chase through downtown in a stolen forklift last week was charged in connection with that incident Thursday, as well as in connection to a December theft of a truck belonging to Garfield County.
