HOUSTON - A food fight at a restaurant Wednesday led to police chasing a vehicle and a bizarre standoff and arrest outside a northeast Houston home.

The incident began about 9:30 p.m. after police received reports of three women throwing sushi and water at each other at 6300 Westheimer Road.

Houston police said that when an officer arrived at the scene, one of the women tried to run over the officer with her vehicle as she left the scene.

“Fortunately, he was able to jump out of the way,” said Lt. Larry Crowson of the Houston Police Department.

Police said they chased the vehicle on the 610 Loop to Ella Boulevard. The driver pulled into the driveway of a home on Four Rivers Court and stopped, police said.

Video of the incident showed the woman, later identified by police as 31-year-old Aleice Dominique Allen, refusing to get out of the car and using her phone as officers surrounded the vehicle. Police said they broke the driver’s side window and removed Allen from the vehicle.

“The officers used a shield and a window punch to punch out the driver’s window,” Crowson said. “They were then able to take the suspect out and take her into custody.”

The video showed that officers were forced to carry Allen, who was kicking and cursing at the officers, to a waiting patrol car. 

“I’m going to keep kicking,” Allen said several times.

Officers bound her hands and feet and then lifted her into the patrol car.

Police said Allen was taken to jail for a mental evaluation. She was later charged with evading in a motor vehicle.

A spokesman for the restaurant said it currently has security on the weekends, but will be adding security on weekdays because of this incident. Nothing like this has happened in the 40 years the restaurant has been in business, the spokesman said.
