A suspected drunk driver slurred his words after a high-speed chase ended with him being zapped with a Taser.

The chase up the North Freeway finally ended in a neighborhood off Sawgrass Ridge and Deborah Ann Way.

Houston officers were originally trying to pull the driver over for suspected drunk driving near North Shepherd. When the driver finally pulled over, he refused a sheriff's deputy's command to get out of his car, so he was shocked with a stun gun.

Afterward he was put in the back of a cruiser and he told our camera crew he didn't want to go to jail.

"I don't want to go to jail," he said. "I don't want to go to jail. Aww man."

The driver is now facing a drunk driving charge and a felony evading charge.
