HOUSTON – A suspect in a Smart Car made a dumb move when he led a DPS trooper on a high-speed chase that ended in his own driveway.
Police say the trooper tried to stop David Wheaton on I-10 near Kirkwood shortly before noon, but he kept going.
The driver sped to the North Loop and continued northbound before taking the Ella exit.
Traffic on Ella forced the Smart Car to slow down and the chase ended in a residential area a few minutes later. It turned out to be Wheaton’s own neighborhood on Kinlay Lane.
