HPD Chief Acevedo, off the clock, chases down street racers


He might have been off the clock. But is a cop ever really off the job? Not HPD Chief Art Acevedo.

Acevedo was on his way home when he came across two drivers racing and weaving in and out of traffic, reaching speeds of over 100 mph. So he did what any police officer would do; his job.

He called for backup and a helicopter for eyes in the sky and started following the racers.

At one point one of the cars went southbound on I-45 and exited on Dallas Street and ran a red light.

That is when Acevedo said he turned on his lights and pulled the driver over.
