Falls County officials said that a man is in custody after a police chase that ended on Highway 7 and Highway 320.

They said they initiated a traffic stop because they got a call about someone driving recklessly. The driver refused to pull over, and a chase ensued.

Officials said when the chase ended and he got out of the car, he had a beer in his hand. He attempted to run on foot, but he was tased.

The Department of Public Safety, the Kosse Police Department, the Lott Police Department and the Falls County Sheriff's Office assisted with the arrest.

EMS has been called to the scene. 

They also said animal control is being called because the man had a pit bull in the vehicle.

The man is now facing charges of evading with a motor vehicle and resisting arrest.
