A man who led officers on a high-speed pursuit in and around Haileyville and Dow in June was sentenced to a prison term after agreeing to a plea deal.

Brian Wayne Davis Jr., 27, of McAlester, was sentenced to 15 years in custody of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections for each felony count Davis received in connection to the pursuit, court documents state.

Davis pleaded guilty Oct. 26 to felony assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, felony larceny of an automobile, and felony eluding a police officer.

According to the plea, Davis will serve eight years in and seven years out under a suspended sentence with the first two years supervised by ODOC’s Probation and Parole Services.

The plea also states that the sentences will run concurrent with each other and along with felony convictions in 2013, 2016, and 2017 for drug and theft related charges. Davis also received credit for time served.

Davis was charged in June after police say he stole a pickup near Frink-Chambers School and was later spotted by Haileyville Police driving the stolen pickup. Court documents state Davis led police on a high-speed chase and rammed a Haileyville Police vehicle during the pursuit.

The affidavit stated the pursuit ended after the stolen vehicle Davis was driving was T-boned by another vehicle that was traveling west U.S. Highway 270 after Davis ran a stop sign.

The driver of the other vehicle was transported to the McAlester Regional Health Center by family members and was later released, the driver told the News-Capital in June.

Davis then exited the wrecked vehicle and ran into a nearby wooded area and was later arrested after deputies spotted him hiding behind a tree, the affidavit states.
