FRIENDSWOOD, Texas Two men were charged with evading arrest after Friendswood police say they ran from officers twice in a 20-minute time span Monday morning.

Donald Norman, 25, and Tony Hall, 17, were in a red pickup truck around 2:50 a.m. when an officer tried to pull them over for a traffic violation in the 2700 block of FM 528, police said.

As the officer exited his car, the pickup truck driver made a U-turn and sped off, leading police on a chase through a nearby subdivision.

Police said both suspects bailed out of the truck, ran into a backyard and eluded officers.

Then, around 3:10 a.m., another officer started chasing a blue Honda Civic nearby.

That car crashed in the 16300 block of Tibet, and both men later identified as Norman and Hall were arrested.

Police said the pickup was registered to a friend of Hall s and the Honda was registered to Norman s wife.

Investigators said Norman told them he ran because he had marijuana on him.
