Man on stolen motorcycle leads police on chase

HOUSTON It started around 7:30pm Wednesday when a Houston police officer spotted a motorcycle speeding down Long Point. A couple of minutes later, he caught up to the motorcycle on Gessner.

A second unit attempted to stop the motorcycle, but the rider tried to go around that squad car. That's when the motorcyclist lost control and slammed into a wooden electrical pole at Gessner and Clay.

Officers say the motorcycle was stolen.
