Police chase ends with suspect crashing into patrol station (KTRK)

Police say a chase has ended with a suspect crashing through the front of an HPD patrol station in west Houston.

The police pursuit came to an end before 9 p.m. Friday in the 3200 block of Dairy Ashford near Richmond Avenue.

"Unfortunately for us, it ended up in the front lobby of the west side station. The fortunate part was no one was injured. You have to imagine, foot traffic is here. Luckily, at that time period, there was no foot traffic," Houston Police Asst. Chief Gaw said.

Police say the driver is likely responsible for setting his parents house on fire.

According to reports, officers responded to a house fire and spotted the suspect attempting to flee the scene.

Police say the suspect led them on a short chase before crashing through the HPD patrol station.

The suspect is now facing numerous charges.
