HOUSTON— A man accused of leading police on a high-speed chase Monday is under arrest and facing multiple charges.

Around 1:45 a.m., police attempted to stop a pickup truck driving along W. Mount Houston after the license plate on the truck came back registered to a car.

According to police, the driver sped away down Forest Acre to Hempstead, turning on the 59 Eastex Freeway and continuing past Atascocita Road to CR 602, in hopes of finding a road. He eventually turned onto a privately-owned property at Ramsey Road, where he ran out of gas.

The driver exited the vehicle and led police on a short foot chase through some farm fields before being detained.

Police said the suspect had an outstanding parole violation and other small warrants, which may have caused him to attempt to flee.
