Woman flees Tulsa police west out of town, later caught in OHP pursuit

Woman flees Tulsa police west out of town, later caught in OHP pursuit


Nichole Elizabeth Robbins is pictured in Oklahoma DOC custody in January 2020.

A woman reportedly led Tulsa police and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol on two lengthy pursuits early Wednesday morning.

Troopers arrested Nichole Robbins, 29, and booked her into the Pawnee County jail.

The initial chase began about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday near Admiral Place and Sheridan Road when Tulsa police attempted to pull over a 2007 Honda Odyssey minivan.

After running the license plate, officers discovered the van was reportedly stolen. When they attempted a traffic stop, Robbins reportedly fled onto the Crosstown Expressway and then west onto U.S. 412 out of Tulsa.

The minimal late-night traffic reportedly yielded to the chase, which mostly stayed in the highway’s inside lanes.

The chase continued until Tulsa police terminated the pursuit in a construction zone in about the west 20000 block of the highway, officials said.

A trooper reportedly later saw the minivan at a gas station and a second pursuit ensued before she was arrested.
