High Speed Police Pursuit from Bishop to Downtown Corpus Christi
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
One man was arrested overnight after leading police on a high speed chase from Bishop to downtown Corpus Christi.
The chase began after Nueces County constables attempted a routine traffic stop. The driver led officers down Highway 77 toward Robstown, and the pursuit did not end until they reached Shoreline and Peoples Street downtown.
"What started off as a minor violation ended up with the driver having several charges on him," Nueces County Constable Oscar Mendoza said. "He decided to run and we ended up here on Shoreline."
The driver was arrested and charged with evading arrest and driving while intoxicated.
