Officials say they tried making a routine traffic stop on a motorcycle near Yukon Road in Odessa.
The motorcyclist did not stop and led law enforcement on a high speed chase.
DPS was going to call off the chase because it was becoming too dangerous to continue through town but the suspect laid down his bike on 1300 block of West University and took off running.
