SAN ANTONIO - A woman who Bexar County sheriff’s deputies believe was at the wheel during a wild chase has been arrested, along with her male passenger.

Deputies took both into custody after their car spun out on Interstate 10 near Pine Street just after 3 a.m. Wednesday.

They say that arrests marked the end of a dangerous chase that stretched from West Bexar County to the East Side of San Antonio.

The couple originally was spotted breaking into mailboxes at an apartment complex near Loop 1604 and Marbach Road, deputies said.

They gave chase, with the suspects’ car traveling at about 120 miles per hour on Loop 1604.

The couple, deputies say, then headed onto Highway 90, traveling in the wrong direction.

They also drove against traffic on parts of I-35, deputies said. 

Fortunately, no one was hurt.

Both people in the car face multiple charges.
