Police: Fleeing Texas man's boss got him to stop
HOUSTON (AP) -- Texas authorities say they dialed a man's boss for assistance in persuading his employee to end a 70-mile high-speed chase.
Police say Lionel Rodriguez took off when officers stopped him for a traffic violation in Willis, 45 miles north of Houston.
They say Rodriguez fled at speeds exceeding 100 mph until he was stopped near Pearland, a southeastern Houston suburb.
Rodriguez had called the police dispatcher, told them that he was a wanted felon and that he wanted police to kill him.
The dispatcher made a three-way call with the suspect's boss who persuaded him to stop.
Records show Rodriguez was booked into the Montgomery County Jail, the county where the chase began.
