Police in the Oklahoma town of Moore are still wrapping their head around a hit-and run incident early Monday morning, involving a bizarre case of two DUI incidents overlapping each other.
Two women asked an MPD officer for assistance after they claimed they were being followed by a vehicle, driven by 22-year-old Tanner Harrison. As Harrison pulled up, he was ordered out of his vehicle and asked to sit on the curb.
Mere seconds after being seated on the sidewalk, Harrison was nearly run over by a second vehicle, driven by 28-year-old William Couch.
“He wasn’t stopping once he got to a certain intersection. The officers were already at that intersection,” MPD Sergeant Jeremy Lewis said. “He didn’t get out of the vehicle. They had to get him out.”
Harrison failed a field sobriety test and was arrested, while Couch was arrested on a complaint of DUI. Police say Couch’s alcohol level was three times the legal limit.
According to KOCO, Harrison was reportedly following the women after being allegedly swindled out of $800. The women were cleared by police and released.
