HOUSTON (KTRK) --A suspect who led police on a chase that ended Monday night in east Houston tells abc13 he ran because he was "high."
The chase started along I-10 and Interstate 45 near downtown. The suspect wove in and out of the streets and various highways for 25 minutes before he pulled over into a gas station along Interstate 10. There, police took him in custody.
Police say it appears the driver refused to pull over because he had a suspended license. But while sitting in the back of a police cruiser, he offered abc13 a different explanation.
"I was high," said the suspect, who identified himself as 48-year-old George Chapa. "I wasn't in my right mind."
The suspect claimed to have been high on cocaine.
