Two people are facing multiple charges after leading Oklahoma law enforcement on a high-speed chase.

The chase continued on foot after the truck hit a gas meter and a fence.

The passenger of the truck, Kenneth Tucker, was seen throwing a loaded Kel-tec PMR30 .22 WMR pistol from the window of the vehicle.

Both were apprehended after a short foot chase.
