HOUSTON -

A man is facing felony charges after leading police on a chase through West Houston.

An HPD officer saw the man run a red light in his Dodge Durango on Highway 6 just after 1 a.m. Wednesday. The officer tried to pull him over, but he kept going, leading police on a short chase.

Officers say the driver lost control and crashed into a ditch on the side of the highway then took off running. A K9 dog found him hiding in the backyard of a house about an hour later. HPD treated him for a dog bite and arrested him.

Police say the man will be charged with DWI and evading arrest.
