BCSO: Man arrested after crashing stolen car into fence during chase
Driver crashed near FM 1519, tried to flee on foot, deputies say
SAN ANTONIO – A local man has been arrested after he led deputies on a chase in a stolen car in Northeast Bexar County overnight, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday.
The incident began just after 1:30 a.m. when deputies spotted the driver in the stolen vehicle and tried to pull the man over.
Deputies said the driver refused to stop and instead sped off, leading deputies on a chase that reached speeds of 110 miles per hour.
The driver eventually crashed into a fence on FM 1519, deputies said.
Authorities said the man tried to run on foot, but he was caught a short time later by deputies.
The BCSO said the car may have been at the scene of a drive-by shooting last week when a house and a few cars were shot at. Officials say the investigation is ongoing.
