BREAKING: Woman runs from police after allegedly stealing truck at dealership, vandalizes football field

Several law enforcement agencies were involved in a pursuit that began in Tahlequah and ended in Muskogee Friday afternoon.

Tahlequah Assistant Police Chief Dexter Scott said a woman pulled into Stuteville Ford of Tahlequah and parked a Ford Edge next to a brand new truck.

"She got out of the vehicle along with her dog. She got into the brand new truck, stole the truck, and left the dealership where she headed toward Muskogee," Scott said.

The woman, who has been identified as Maggie Caudle, 42, ran off the road and reportedly struck a fence at Sequoyah High School. Video footage posted to Facebook purportedly shows the woman drive into the football field, and doing donuts. Witnesses said Caudle was yelling, "White power" and "I'm the new chief."

"She was able to get back on the roadway and the Cherokee Nation Marshal Service was able to catch up with the vehicle. Somewhere on U.S. Highway 62, a pursuit ensued and they pursued her into Fort Gibson where [the Oklahoma Highway Patrol] took over the pursuit," he said.

The chase eventually ended at a dealership in Muskogee when Caudle was taken into custody.

"It was reported that she refused to cooperate when she was taken into custody and she's also refusing to give any information," Scott said.

There are not reports of injuries as of Friday afternoon and Scott said the dog has been turned over to Muskogee Animal Control.

Muskogee Police Department, CNMS, Tahlequah Police Department, and the OHP are working the case.
