"Listen, she's fine and I'm fine," said homeowner Morris Dante.
He was jolted out of bed just before 1am. The loud crashing sound worried him.
"We thought it was lightning. It was a huge crash," he said. "When I looked up towards this way, I saw light and I figured it was on fire."
What Dante saw was the headlight in his home. Authorities say the white Chevy Malibu came crashing into Dante's dining room. It was a destructive end to what began as an attempted traffic stop.
HPD says an officer spotted the car with a broken headlight at Hillcroft at Wigton and tried to pull over the Chevy. The driver began to speed off. The chase ended a few blocks away at Wigton near Bob White.
The driver took off on foot. The passenger, Antoine Carr Williams, 21, was found hiding behind the garage of another home a couple blocks away. Williams was arrested and has been charged with felony evading arrest.
As for Dante, he's already begun to clean up.
"This won't be about a few months of aggravation here," he said.
The driver remains on the loose but authorities say they know who he is.
