    TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Police said a man was arrested for chasing an animal control officer with a pick axe on Monday.

    Police said officers were called to a disturbance with a weapon near East 49th Street North and MLK Jr Boulevard around 2:20 p.m. on Monday.

    A City of Tulsa Animal Control Officer reported a man wearing no shirt was chasing after her vehicle with a pick axe.

    The animal control officer said she responded to a report of a dog hit by a car in the area and had loaded the deceased dog into the back of her truck when she encountered the suspect, later identified as Trey Basks.

    She reported Basks, who claimed the dog was his, was angry and upset and chased her with a pick axe. He then threw the pick axe into a field and started making threats to shoot her, police said.
