A routine traffic stop turned into a chase overnight on Houston's south side. The chase started around 3:15am and came to an end on Knotty Oaks and Rocky Springs. A Pearland police officer tried to pull the driver over, but he took off. The chase went through several streets before the driver pulled into a driveway.

Officers used a Taser on the man, and then arrested him. No one else was in the car.

Police don't know why he fled.
