Woman throws glass inside restaurant before sparking police chase and standoff in west Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston police released a mugshot of the woman in the middle of a bizarre restaurant fight that turned into a police chase and standoff in west Houston.

Aleice Dominique Allen, 31, has been charged with felony evading in a motor vehicle.

Police say three women got into an argument and fight at Miyako's restaurant at 6300 Westheimer around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The manager of the restaurant told Eyewitness News that the place was left a total mess after Allen started throwing glass.

Exclusive video from inside the restaurant shows two women throwing punches and pulling hair for about a minute before the fight was taken outside.

Another video clip shows Allen coming back inside the restaurant and sitting at the bar, arguing with the manager.

Moments later, Allen was caught on camera throwing drinking glasses and beers across the bar, hitting a fish tank and shelf.

Allen was also spotted smashing a wine bottle on her way out, causing the flying glass to cut an employee on the arm. Several customers were seen running out of the way.

When police arrived, she jumped in her car and allegedly tried to run over an officer. He was able to get out of the way and she took off.

Allen then led police on a slow-speed chase that ended about 11 miles away at her home off Pinemont and Ella.

Authorities tell Eyewitness News she pulled into the driveway and just sat there, playing on her phone and ignoring commands from officers to get out of the vehicle.

After more than 10 minutes, police finally punched out the Allen's side window and removed her, HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said.

Allen kicked, yelled and refused to cooperate. Police were able to put her in the back of a patrol car, but they had to use leg restraints so she couldn't hurt herself or kick officers.
