Teen, man arrested after police chase
HOUSTON – A 16-year-old and a man were taken into custody leading them on a chase after hit-and-run, officials said.
The chase started at 3:59 p.m. at highway 59 and Beltway 8.
Harris County Precinct 5 Capt. Kevin Hubbard said one of their deputies spotted a hit-and-run accident, which led to the chase.

The chase ended at 4:28 p.m. in the 8900 block of West Airport Boulevard, where the suspects were taken into custody.
Police said there were no reported injuries.
