HOUSTON— Two men were arrested Monday after leading police on a high-speed chase and crashing into a bayou in south Houston.
Around 4:30 a.m. police attempted to stop a car driving along Telephone Road for traffic violations.
According to police, the driver sped away down Monroe Street and turned on Bryan Street, not knowing that it was a dead end.
The driver continued driving in hopes of finding a road and drove into the bayou.
The passenger exited the vehicle and led police on a short foot chase before being detained. The driver, who was trapped was eventually rescued, police said.
