Bryan Lee Lynch, 29, of Warner is charged in Muskogee County District Court with felony eluding, running a roadblock, assault with a dangerous weapon, driving with suspended license, possession of drug paraphernalia, obstructing an officer and destroying evidence after an April 7 chase through Warner, according to documents filed with the case.
Warner Police Officer Clint Powell stopped Lynch around 3:45 p.m. in Warner when Lynch is accused of fleeing southbound in his pickup truck. Another officer joined the chase, and stopped the truck, attempting to reach in and turn the truck off.
The officer’s affidavit accuses Lynch of driving away with the officer’s arm still in the truck. The officer withdrew his arm and continued pursuing Lynch’s vehicle eight miles, during which Lynch is alleged to have almost caused several wrecks, rammed the patrol car and eventually fled on foot.
The officer stated he was able to catch Lynch and subdue him.
The charges accuse Lynch of attempting to swallow a small baggie during the incident.
