The pursuit started when a police officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop with the teen, who was driving an ATV on a public roadway near Humble High School, according to KTRK-TV. It is illegal to drive a four-wheeler on a public street in Texas. The teen didn’t stop and officers soon lost him in Homestead, the station reported.
Harris County Sheriff’s deputies and a Department of Public Safety trooper eventually caught up with the teen as he headed onto the Eastex Freeway. Houston Transtar cameras caught the vehicle being followed by authorities as he headed down the highway.
The teen also captured his joy ride on Snapchat, police told the station.
