It happened shortly before 3:30 a.m. Friday in the 6500 block of Wakeforest near Pittsburg St.
Investigators say they spotted the two men in a car in the neighborhood and when police tried to stop them, they drove off.
That's when they nearly ran over responding officers as they bailed out of the stolen vehicle. The car rolled into a yard at Wakeforest and Centenary.
The passenger was caught with the help of a K9. The second suspect is still on the run.
A Bellaire police officer was seen operating a drone that seemed to be checking out the backyards of nearby homes during the search.
Active police search going on in West U for a suspect. HPD is here with their helicopter, there is a K-9 unit going door to door and police are using a drone.#abc13eyewitness pic.twitter.com/Rt1smWfzJk— Jeff Ehling (@JeffEhlingABC13) February 14, 2020
