A daring get away, as a man tried to flee from police while his car was on fire.
Police attempted to pull over a driver for a routine traffic violation around 4:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
That's when they say the driver took off leading them on a chase.
Investigators say one of the man's tires gave out in southeast Houston, but that did not stop him from driving on the rim. Sparks started to fly, causing the front part of the car to catch fire.
Eventually the man pulled into an apartment complex on Galveston Road and Park Place where he was taken into custody.
It is unclear why that man took off. Police believe he was intoxicated.
