HOUSTON – Multiple suspects are now in custody after leading police on a chase and crashing into a bayou in southwest Houston on Monday afternoon, according to Houston police.

The Houston Police Department said DPS officers were originally chasing the suspects until HPD units responded when the chase reached the 3000 block of Eldridge.

Multiple suspects were taken into custody when the crash ended on Townpark and Ranchester after the driver crashed into the bayou.

The driver, who has since been identified as Anthony Mitchel, had a warrant for a home invasion in Cook County, Illinois, according to court documents.

He was arrested and charges are still pending.
