Video: High speed pursuit ends in takedown by Texas police

Neighbors watched as pursuit went from car to foot through their yards

SCHERTZ, Texas — A high-speed pursuit ended on foot in a residential area when Shertz police took down a suspect as neighbors watched and captured the arrest on phone camera.

A crash ended the high-speed pursuit — though what the suspect crashed into is unclear.

Police were forced to secure the area during a foot pursuit, blocking off school buses full of children.

"I thought 'thank God I'm home,' because if I wasn't home, there's no telling if the door wasn't locked if he tried to get in. Mine's the first one," said Nikki Hughes, a resident who witnessed the takedown from her porch.

Schertz police have not commented on the incident.
