PASADENA, Texas – A male suspect was taken into custody Saturday morning leading police on a car chase through east Harris County, police said.
The chase began just after 9 a.m. after the man took off from a family disturbance in east Houston, according to the Houston Police Department.
Police chased the suspect for 30 minutes through Baytown, Deer Park and La Porte.
The suspect hit a dead end in Pasadena, but then refused to get out of his car. That is when officers called in a HPD SWAT team to assist.
“They were just basically waiting, and once he got out, they stood by for a little bit. Then the second time he got out, they swarmed him and took him in,” a witness said.
Officers used pepper sprayed and arrested him.
