NEWKIRK — A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tyler Lee Talbott, 33, Sallisaw, in Kay County District Court.

Talbott was arrested by Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Tyler Langston on Nov. 9 at the intersection of 7th Street and Victory following a pursuit.

Langston reports in the affidavit that he attempted to stop a vehicle displaying an improper tag. The driver, later identified as Talbott, did not stop and a pursuit ensued east on Victory Road to 5th Street.

The pursuit went west on Walker where Kay County deputy Dakota Jarvis set up a roadblock. Talbott reportedly ran the roadblock and continued west to U.S. 77 where he went south.

Langston reportedly got beside the vehicle and Talbott reportedly made a left turn, ramming the trooper’s unit. He rammed Langston’s unit a second time causing the trooper to hit a cement barrier between 7th and Tonkawa Ave.

The pursuit continued east on Tonkawa through a stop signal Tonkawa and 7th Street. 

At 6th Street the pursuit went to Grand where Langston set up to perform a Tactical Vehicle Intervention, but Talbott reportedly hit his brakes, causing Langton to go past the vehicle.

Langston stopped his vehicle and the truck came to a stop behind his. Langston ordered Talbott out of the truck several times before he complied.

Jarvis assisted Langston in arresting Talbott.

Talbott is charged with felony counts of endangering others while eluding police; assault and battery with a deadly weapon, and running a roadblock. He is also facing seven misdemeanor charges. He is being held on $150,000 bond.
