BRYAN COUNTY, Okla. – Today the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) was requested by the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office to investigate a traffic stop that resulted in a use-of-force incident.

A Bryan County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to make a traffic stop yesterday evening on Hodge Road in Cartwright. The vehicle initially pulled over but then took off. The deputy began pursing the driver and other agencies became involved in the pursuit.

After several minutes, the vehicle came to a stop at the intersection of 2nd and State Highway 91 in Cartwright. While the driver was being arrested, both the drive and one passenger exited the vehicle. An altercation between law enforcement and those exiting the vehicle began.

The driver was taken to the hospital and has been treated and released.

At this early point into the OSBI investigation, there is no additional information to be released.
