HOUSTON – A man faces charges of evading arrest after he led police on a chase early Saturday morning on the Loop in north Houston.
Police said that at about 2 a.m. an officer attempted to pull over a car for a traffic violation on East 31st Street near Airline Drive. The car took off, and the officer followed in pursuit.
The suspect got onto the North Loop from Airline and headed west, staying on the Loop the entire time. The suspect would have driven the entire Loop except he ran out of gas at Wallisville.
The man was taken into custody. Police said that he did not have any warrants for arrest or drugs in his car, so they have no idea why he fled.
