(KFOR) A dramatic car chase through Oklahoma City ended with an on-camera capture and confession Monday.

It started with a taxi cab driver getting carjacked and ended with the suspect hiding in the woods near I-35.

After being arrested, the suspect admitted what he did.

“I didn’t have no money so this is what I had to do,” said the suspect, 30-year-old Michael Patton. “I messed up, but remember I take care of my kids no matter what.”

Police say Patton stole and crashed the Yellow Cab, while officers used GPS to track the van’s location.

When the alleged cabbie carjacker, wearing a blonde wig, ditched the cab and tried to escape on foot, NBC affiliate KFOR’s news helicopter led police right to him.
