Driver in stolen car leads police on brief chase

Police arrested a driver overnight who, at one point, was going the wrong way on the freeway.

It all started in the Garden Oaks area when the driver apparently failed to dim his bright lights. When deputies tried to stop him, he sped away and led them on a brief chase.

Deputies tailed that suspect from the 610 Loop, where at times he was driving the wrong way, to Highway 290 and then across I-10 before it came to an end at West Durham. The chase only lasted about 12 minutes.

We're told that deputies have two people in custody -- one adult male and one minor who was his passenger, also a male. Their IDs haven't been released.

Authorities say they were in a stolen vehicle. The suspects are looking at burglary of a motor vehicle and evading arrest charges.
