A Harris County deputy was across the street and witnessed the accident. According to the sheriff's office, Captain Chapa led the deputy on a chase of about a half mile through a subdivision. Chapa was eventually pulled over and charged with felony evading arrest.
Captain Chapa is now at St. Luke's Hospital. We're told he has a concussion.
"At this point, we have absolutely no idea why," said Chief John Laine with the Harris County Precinct 5 constable's office. "We have a theory that maybe it's just like a professional fighter. Maybe he just got his bell rung during an accident. There's no obvious explanation."
Chapa has been with the Precinct 5 constable's office for 15 years and we're told he's well respected within the department. He's currently on medical leave, but we're told that could change, pending the outcome of the investigation.
