Ft. Sill Soldier Leads Police On Chase

A Fort Sill soldier that led police on a high speed weekend chase is in custody.

Brian Cornelius Williams, 24, is with the 15th Transportation Company. Investigators said a person who got out of the stolen car he was driving Sunday night at a Lawton KFC identified him. An off-duty sheriff's deputy recognized the car,  a black Camaro, as being reported stolen last week and possibly involved in a pursuit on Fort Sill.

After letting his passenger out Sunday night, authorities said Williams led Lawton Police, Comanche County Sheriff's deputies and the highway patrol on a car chase to Frederick. At some point, speeds reached 140 miles per hour. An OHP car crashed during the chase and Williams got out and took off running in Frederick.

Williams was arrested Tuesday, February 28th, when he attempted to return to the fort.

He is in custody at the Comanche County Detention Center, facing several charges.
