Tulsa Marshals arrest Dakota Dorl on Kay County charges

The U.S. Marshals Service for the Northern District of Oklahoma, located in Tulsa, on Friday arrested Dakota Lee Dorl in west Tulsa after a chase.

Marshals deputies received information from the Oklahoma City office about Dorl, who is a suspect wanted in Kay County.

The Marshals Service said Dorl led a chase through west Tulsa, left his truck in the woods and ran. Dorl was taken into custody after Marshals used a taser to stop him.

Dorl was wanted in Kay County District Court on two complaints of endangering others while attempting to elude officers after two or more former convictions, a felony; possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) a misdemeanor, and obstructing an officer, a misdemeanor. The warrants were filed in December 2017. Bond was set at $500,000.

In October, Dorl was driving a car involved in a one-vehicle accident on U.S. 177 in Noble County, near the Sooner Power Plant.

A Ponca City ambulance and a medical evacuation helicopter responded to that accident.

The incident began when a Kay County deputy attempted to make a felony warrant stop of the vehicle near Second Street and Otoe Avenue in Ponca City. Rather than stopping, the driver took off with the deputy in pursuit. The deputy later backed off.

An officer from the Otoe-Missouria Police Department reported the driver passed their station at an extremely high rate of speed.

The driver then lost control of the vehicle and hit a culvert. Passersby stated debris was scattered in a very large area and  the vehicle was nearly unrecognizable. A passenger in Dorl’s car, Ashley Peterson, spent three months in an Oklahoma City hospital. Dorl also was transported from the accident by ambulance but disappeared before he could be arrested.

A warrant was issued for Dorl on Dec. 14, 2017, on the three charges involving the October pursuit and accident.

A bench warrant was issued Feb. 2, 2018, in Kay County District Court when Dorl failed to appear in court on previous felony charges of child neglect after two or more former felony convictions and possession of methamphetamine after two or more former felony convictions. Bond was endorsed at $50,000.
