Police arrest man after he leads them on short chase, officials say

HOUSTON – A man led police on a short chase after running a red light Saturday morning, officials said. 

According to officer, the man driving a pickup truck without plates ran a red light on Lockwood Drive around 1 a.m.

When officers attempted to pull the man over, they said he sped up and led them on a short chase before stopping on Benson Street and attempting to flee on foot, authorities said. 

The man was caught and taken into custody. 

Officials said it is unclear why he fled from police because the truck was registered in the man's name. 

The man now faces the charge of evading arrest.
