Spike Strips Used to Stop Lawton Man During 100 MPH Chase

 

A Lawton man who led Wichita County deputies and other agencies on a high speed, zig- zagging chase that  ended on I-44 in cotton county  has been extradited to Wichita County.
 
58 year old Kurt Smenner is charged with evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance. According to details in the arrest affidavit: A deputy said he tried to pull over Smenner's pickup late on the night of December 28th for no license plate light.
 
The truck  sped off at Sheppard Access and Old Iowa Park Road. It then turned onto numerous roadways in the area  before getting on I-44 and I-44 ramps and getting off onto other roads repeatedly.
 
Finally it headed north on  I-44 at speeds up to 100 miles and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers were notified. At mile marker 15  a trooper laid down spike strips and soon after the truck passed there, it slowed down and finally stopped after two miles.
 
The deputy said Smenner left the truck and was caught and tased about 100  feet from it, and taken to Cotton County jail.
