Police chase in southwest Houston ends when officers zap suspect with Taser

HOUSTON

It started around 2am when officers tried to pull over the suspect on Westpark and Alder.

The driver took off and crashed into a car and a pickup within minutes on Skyline at Greenridge

Authorities say the suspect got out of his car and tried to run, but an officer shocked him with a Taser and took him into custody.

The car was not stolen, police say, but investigators believe the driver and two other people may have been burglarizing vehicles in the area. Officials tell us they think he dropped off his accomplices before the chase started.
