An overnight police chase that nearly circled the entire city finally ended when the suspect ran out of gas, authorities said.

An officer reportedly tried to pull over the suspect around 1:30am for running a stop sign at the North Loop near Ella, but the suspect wouldn't stop.

According to investigators, the suspect almost went around the entire 610 Loop before he finally pulled over on the East Loop at Wallisville because his gas tank ran out of fuel.

The driver was arrested and faces potential charges of evading arrest.

He did not have any outstanding warrants, and it's unclear why he ran from police.
