Suspect leads New Braunfels officers on high-speed chase into San Marcos

A 32-year-old Houston driver was arrested Friday afternoon after taking New Braunfels police on a high-speed chase that ended in San Marcos.

New Braunfels police say officers responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the 200 block of Creekside Crossing. Officers saw the suspicious vehicle, a maroon Hyundai Tucson, flee the scene, ignoring all lights and sirens, and headed southbound on I-35, reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour.

The SUV took a turnaround and headed northbound, still fleeing at a high rate of speed and eventually leaving New Braunfels city limits and entering San Marcos. Officers continued to pursue the SUV into northern San Marcos, where it exited, turned around and headed southbound, then took another turnaround and headed northbound again.

Officers were able to bring the SUV to a stop at the 205 exit in San Marcos.

The driver was arrested without incident and transported to the Comal County Jail where New Braunfels police say he will be charged with felony evading in a vehicle and other charges may be pending.

The driver was the only one in the SUV and no injuries of the suspect or officers were reported.
