A suspected car thief is now in jail after leading police on a dangerous chase in north Harris County.

The man was taken into custody Tuesday morning after police used spike strips to flatten the tires on the stolen Chevy Suburban he was driving. Just moments earlier, the man had driven the wrong way down a stretch of the Hardy Toll Road.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.
