After the vehicle came to a stop in the dirt near the edge of the UH campus, the driver refused to get out, prompting heavy police activity in the area.
It's unclear how the chase began, but police said the suspect was armed.
University of Houston police said officers worked with HPD at the scene near Pink's Pizza and the Nook and asked people to avoid the area during the ordeal.
The driver finally gave up just before 6 p.m.
It was not yet clear what charges they'll face.
