GRANBURY - The driver of a white car led police on an action-packed pursuit that weaved in-and-out of the streets of Tarrant and Hood counties before the suspect's capture Monday afternoon.

The pursuit began after an officer attempted to pull over the suspect after he failed to yield. The chase started on the service lanes of westbound Interstate 30 at Camp Bowie Boulevard and ended in Granbury.

Police were able to throw down a set of spikes when the chase hit Hood County, but the suspect managed to drive around them.

The pursuit led to some tricky turns in a hotel parking lot, where the suspect managed to escape several patrol cars by hopping over a curb, losing a hubcap and driving over a median and back onto the road.

When the suspect hit a car near the courthouse in downtown Granbury, the chase appeared to be over. However, the suspect fled in the vehicle just as officers got out of their patrol cars, pointing their guns toward the vehicle.

Police were able to capture the suspect after he bailed from his moving car, jumping onto the hood, sliding off and taking off on foot. He then ran into a field, where he fell and was captured by officers.
