Residents who live near 610 are well aware of the street racers that frequent the west loop at night. The sound is very distinct. Finally some of them were caught by Bellaire Police and one sent police on a high speed chase October 7.
KHOU.com reports that “Police in Bellaire took a man in custody who allegedly tried to outrun officers along the 610 Loop.” “The incident started along the 610 West Loop where Houston police radioed ahead to Bellaire police that a group of suspected street racers were heading their way. Bellaire police stopped all of the suspects except for one in an older Infiniti coupe. That driver allegedly refused to pull over.”
KHOU interview Corporal Clawson with the Bellaire Police Department who said “the suspect led officers at speeds topping 120 mph as he continued to I-45. The driver exited the freeway’s mainlanes to the frontage road before getting back on the freeway. The suspect eventually hit a barrier near I-45 and Beltway 8 before he stopped. He was then taken into custody.”
