VIDEO: Houston burglary suspect tackled by police helicopter pilot


HOUSTON, Texas (KXAN) – Dramatic video shows a police chase ending with a helicopter crew member taking down a burglary suspect.

Police received a burglary call earlier this afternoon, and when authorities responded, two suspects drove off.

Officers pursued the vehicle, and eventually one suspect ran into an open field.

At one point, the suspect is side-swiped by a police SUV but keeps running.

The chase finally ends when a Houston police helicopter involved in the chase lands, and a crew member runs down the suspect, tackling him to the ground.

Other officers arrived and the man was taken into custody.

The second suspect was also arrested at the scene.
