News

(KPRC) A 15-year-old on a four-wheeler is in trouble after he led police on a chase that ended up on the Eastex Freeway near Humble, Texas.

The Humble Police Department said they received a call around 9:30 a.m. about someone riding an ATV on side streets in Humble, which is illegal.

Traffic Sgt. Jack Burt with Humble police said one of his officers spotted the teen near Humble High School. He said when the officer tried to pull the teen over, he fled.

“He stayed on the roadway quite a bit, we did lose him at one point where he hit the bayou, we were searching the area then another agency located the four-wheeler again and the pursuit picked back up with another agency until we got back involved in the pursuit,” Burt said.
