Video: Texas police chase Smart Car

The 6 foot tall driver was apprehended in his driveway as startled neighbors watched

By PoliceOne Staff

HOUSTON — A suspect in a Smart Car led police on a chase this month that, from helicopter video cameras, resembled a speeding wind-up toy.

The odd pursuit began when a trooper attempted to stop David Wheaton near Kirkwood, but he kept driving. Video footage shows Wheaton continuing north ahead of a patrol car and then take an exit, where traffic forced him to slow down.

Wheaton, who is about 6 feet tall and 250 pounds, was apprehended in his driveway as startled neighbors watched, KHOU reported

He was charged with DWI and evading police.
