Suspect forcibly removed from car at end of police chase

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A woman was taken into custody at the end of a police pursuit that ended on Houston's south side.

A DPS trooper got a call about an erratic driver in Chambers County at I-10 and Highway 146. When he tried to pull the driver over, she refused to stop. As the chase began, authorities say the woman called the Baytown Police Department because she was reportedly concerned the people trying to pull her over weren't really cops.

The roughly 20 minute slow speed chase came to an end at a gas station along Highway 288 at MacGregor.

The woman refused to get out of her car, and after about five minutes, troopers forcibly removed her from the driver's seat.

The woman, whose identity has not yet been released, has been taken to the Chambers County Jail. Authorities say she is undergoing a mental evaluation.
