IT WAS JUST TOO HOT FOR A POLICE CHASE!

POLICE ENDURE THE HEAT TO CATCH THEIR GUYS!



I have to take my hat off to Houston Police officers. I had the chance to cover the cops today as they chased down two suspects in near 90 degree temperatures. The car pursuit ended on Poplar street in southeast Houston. Once the officers tracked down the suspects in an older model Chevy Suburban they had to endure a foot chase. The suspects, two of them, were captured after HPD called out the dogs. But it was so hot one of the police units died as steam from the radiator shot into the air. And then Torrey ‘T-Dub’ Walker asked me to carry a 30 pound tripod as we followed the path of the chase on foot. It was hot. No one was inured in the chase but my feet hurt!
