The driver eventually was forced to turn into Olmos Park due to road construction and tried cutting through a parking lot before hitting a telephone pole, officials said.

The man then bailed from his vehicle before being caught near an H-E-B grocery store.

At this time, it is not known why officials were chasing the suspect.

No one was hurt.
