Video: Suspect in Mustang flees police

Spike strips punctured the tires


ROWLETT, Texas — A lengthy police chase ended without incident on a bridge over Texas' Lake Ray Hubbard on Tuesday afternoon. Timothy Barber, 23, allegedly fled an attempted traffic stop for speeding east of Greenville in Hunt County.

"He made that decision, to run from law enforcement, so he ended up getting on I-30 and the result is what we have here this evening," Department of Public Safety Trooper Lonny Haschel.
