Lubbock Police have one man in custody after a Friday morning chase that ended in central Lubbock.

Officers responded to a domestic disturbance call around 2:40 a.m. at the 7-11 on 2608 Avenue Q. When they arrived, 40-year-old Amador Rodrigues and an unnamed female fled in an SUV, almost hitting an officer who was on foot.

Rodrigues led police on a chase and then stopped to let the female out of the vehicle. The chase continued until Rodrigues crashed into a dirt mound at 2000 28th Street. He exited his wrecked vehicle and fled on foot. After a brief foot chase, officers were able to apprehend him.

Rodrigues was charged with aggravated assault on a public servant, evading arrest and evading on foot, among other charges.
