HOUSTON -

A man is in custody after leading police on a high-speed chase on a motorcycle.

Officials said it started around midnight Friday on the North Freeway and Crosstimbers after officers tried to pull the driver over for a traffic violation.

The motorcyclist took off and lead police on a chase south on I-45 to the Dallas Street exit.

The chase ended in downtown Houston when the man tried to turn onto Clay Street, but hit a curb and fell off his bike.

Police arrested the man at the scene.

Officers said the suspect had several warrants out for his arrest and that's why he tried to out run police.
