A man is in custody after San Antonio police say he stole a fire department vehicle and led officers on a high-speed chase early Thursday morning.
Around 8:30 a.m., 2 SAFD officials were inside a Starbucks coffee shop on Houston Street when a man got inside the truck, which was left running. The man then drove the truck through downtown, hitting multiple vehicles and various objects. He eventually sideswiped an 18-wheeler and also hit a charter bus. In total, police said the chase lasted almost an hour and ended near I-35 and Loop 1604.
Despite the man’s path of destruction, there were no injures throughout the chase. Authorities were able to detain the suspect, who has not been named but reportedly has several outstanding warrants, after some resistance.
