NEWKIRK — A warrant is issued for Tyler Wade Moulton, 33, Perry, by the Kay County District Court.

Moulton is facing a felony charge of endangering others while eluding police and driving while license cancelled. The charges were filed on Nov. 4.

Tonkawa police officer Perry Smith reports in the affidavit that on Aug. 15 at 1:20 a.m. he attempted to stop a vehicle that he observed driving at a high rate of speed through the Tonkawa Casino parking lot.

Smith reports the vehicle slid sideways coming out of the parking lot onto U.S. 60.

Fort Oakland police officers contacted Smith and confirmed the driver was Moulton and that they had responded to a report of a fight at the casino. While speaking to Moulton about the incident, he reportedly fled the casino parking lot. The officers reported he was intoxicated and being aggressive.

Smith reportedly activated his lights and attempted to stop Moulton, who reportedly yelled obscenities out the window at Smith before heading south on Interstate 35.

Smith reports a pursuit began with speeds reaching 140mph. Moulton reportedly exited the Interstate at mile marker 211 at a high rate of speed and almost rolled the vehicle before running a stop sign at I-35 and Fountain Road.

Smith reports Moulton turned west onto Fountain Road, turned the vehicles’ lights off and continued at a high rate of speed. Smith reportedly lost site of the vehicle at 1:22 a.m. while attempting to follow its dust trail.

With the help of Fort Oakland police and casino security, police learned that his driver’s license is suspended and that he has a history of eluding police.

On Sept. 1, Moulton was charged in Noble County with felony charges of kidnapping, discharging a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony after being arrested by Perry police.

Bond was set at $75,000 and on Sept. 8, reduced to $10,000. He is set for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 17 in that case in Noble County.
