Police were pursuing a suspect in southwest Houston, occasionally at slow speeds through residential neighborhoods, for about half an hour before he gave himself up. The driver appeared to be cautious, not driving at high speeds, and even using turn signals, although he ran through some stop signs and traffic signals.

It's unknown why Houston police officers began chasing the suspect, who was driving a dark colored sedan. The pursuit started at about 11:15m in the 5600 block of S. Braeswood. The driver traveled on the Beltway 8 feeder roads, making a repeated loop back and forth.

At one point, the driver pulled through a gas station, and kept going. On a second pass into the same gas station, the man stopped the car, got out and laid down on the ground. He was taken into custody without further incident.

No injuries or collisions have been reported. It's not yet known what charges the driver may face.
