A 15-year-old has been charged with felony evading after leading Texas officers on a chase while driving an ATV on the Eastex Freeway. The teen posted some of the pursuit on Snapchat.

Police say the pursuit started Thursday morning when a Humble, TX, officer noticed the teen driving the ATV down Wilson Road near Humble High School and tried to pull him over. It is illegal to drive a four-wheeler on a public street.

Harris County sheriff’s deputies caught up with him on Lauder Road and then went over to the freeway in the northbound lanes, where the teen was spotted on Houston Transtar cameras traveling past FM 1960 and then Townsen.

The hour-long pursuit eventually ended off the FM 1340 exit, where the teen surrendered. Deputies took him over to the Tractor Supply Co. to get the ATV off the freeway and took him into custody.
