Police caught up with a chase suspect minutes after he crashed into a deputy's car in Houston's northwest side overnight. It all started after another deputy pulled the man over for possible DWI. As the deputy started to arrest him, he slipped away with one hand in cuffs and jumped into his truck, taking off at high speeds. He eventually crashed into a deputy's car on Bingle and Tidwell.

Police say he still didn't give up, running into his home a few blocks away on Autumn Forest. Deputies then arrested him without further incident.

The deputy who was hit was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
