Driver arrested after chase

HOUSTON - A driver who led deputy constables on a chase has been arrested.

Harris County Precinct 7 deputy constables said Houston police tried to stop the driver on Bellfort near Nunn in southeast Houston.

A passenger in the car jumped out and ran on foot and the driver took off, investigators said.

Deputy constables chased the driver along the Beltway and the driver stopped near Harwin. Detectives said a Harris County Precinct 5 deputy constable threw out spike strips, which destroyed one of the car's tires.
