TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say a man wanted for failing to signal a lane change ran from Tulsa police and stopped to get a haircut before being arrested.

The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1SK4LHL ) reports that the 27-year-old man was arrested Sunday on several complaints, including eluding police after a felony conviction and possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.

Police say they saw the man's car cross several lanes of traffic and a police officer tried to pull him over. They say after a pursuit, the man got out of his car and ran to an apartment complex. Police later found the man inside an apartment.

Officers noted the man "sported a freshly clipped head with extremely short hair" despite reportedly having a "large amount of hair" when running from his car.
