Early Friday morning a police chase took place following an attempt for Pasadena PD to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation. Both HPD and HCCO Precinct 8 had to get involved.

The pursuit started near Richey & Allen Genoa around 1:50 a.m. The driver at the time sent officials on a goose chase going westbound towards 45, south to 45, ultimately turning around near Clear Lake City Blvd and going north. 

The male suspect attempted to go north on East Street, but the vehicle crashed. He then foot-bailed until he was caught in a nearby HEB parking lot.

He told police a female passenger was forcing him to flee by holding him at gunpoint. No weapon or evidence was found in the car.

The unidentified female passenger was transported to the hospital with injuries following the crash. No arrests have been made against her at this time. The male suspect is being charged with felony evading.

No word has been made on the relation of the two parties involved.
