A woman is in custody after a chase last night that started in Brazoria County and ended in Ft. Bend.

According to the Ft. Bend County Sheriff's Office, Brazoria County deputies were called to a stabbing on Wednesday night. When a deputy arrived, they say Briana Miles, 21, reportedly pulled out a knife and took off in the deputy's vehicle.

Deputies gave chase and reportedly shot out the tires of the vehicle, but she kept going.

Investigators say Miles bailed out of the vehicle near Brumbelow and Beard, which is a rural area of Ft. Bend County, where she was taken into custody.

The stabbing victim, Richard Bowman, 53, was airlifted to a hospital. He'd been stabbed four or five times with a fishing knife. Deputies say the two were engaged in a lover's quarrel.

Miles has been charged with aggravated assault.
