Suspect wanted in takeover of intersection on Bammer North Houston Road was arrested after 55-mile chase, Harris County lawmakers say

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) — A young man is in custody after leading her on a 55-mile chase, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities said it all started at the corner of Eldridge Parkway and Bissonnet just after midnight on Saturday when they tried to stop a driver for participating in an intersection takeover.

Deputies said when they arrived at the scene, they saw a Mustang spinning at the intersection.

When a deputy tried to stop the driver, he pulled away and led police in a pursuit as far as Green Pines and Bamel North Houston Road. MPs said the chase lasted about 55 miles.

The sheriff’s office said as soon as the chase ended, the suspect jumped out of the car and ran. About 10 or 15 minutes later, the deputies were able to take him into custody.

One of the local lieutenants had this message for people participating in intersections and road takeovers.

“I would say don’t do it. You may end up hurting yourself, someone else could get killed, but more importantly, just do the right thing. People get killed just for playing and having fun. Stop it,” said Lt. Kenneth Benoit.

In April, a 21-year-old was charged with murder and aggravated assault after he allegedly took part in a street takeover and led police in a chase when they tried to stop him.

This hunt ended in a fatal accident. No one was injured in Saturday’s case, but the suspect was charged with fatal conduct and evading a motor vehicle.
