LIVINGSTON, Texas - A man was arrested after a two-hour police chase that went through four counties Sunday night.

Just after 8 p.m., Livingston police saw the man trying to break into cars in a Walmart parking lot. 

When they approached him, the suspect jumped into his Toyota and took off headed north on U.S. 59.

Just north of Livingston, police said the man made a U-turn and headed south.

DPS joined the chase along with Cleveland and Liberty County sheriff's deputies. When the chase entered Montgomery County, deputies deployed spike strips, which punctured the tires, but the driver did not stop. 

Officials said the suspect drove all the way into Humble, Houston and Harris County.

Eventually, the car was in such bad shape it was only going about 5 mph.  It eventually gave about a mile from Highway 59 and Lee Road.

Officials said the driver was pulled from the car and arrested. He was taken back to Livingston to face charges.

His name was not immediately released.
