HOUSTON -- Harris County Precinct 6 deputies said a simple traffic stop turned into a chase that ended with a car plowing into a home on Monday evening.

The incident happened in the 5200 block of Kingsbury in southeast Houston.

The car bulldozed right into a couple’s bedroom, and the three people inside bailed off and took off running.

Precinct 6 deputies caught up with and arrested a female passenger who had been riding in the car.

Gerald Mitchell was out back feeding his dogs when the car slammed into his bedroom.

“That’s where me and my wife sleep at,” Mitchell said. “Luckily I didn’t go to bed around that time.”

Neighbors and friends helped him board up his house.

Deputies were still searching for the other two men in the car.
