LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) -

A Levelland chase that lasted 36 minutes early this morning ended with one 23-year-old woman in jail.

According to Captain Duane Rust with the Levelland Police Department, the chase started at 1:14 a.m. after officers tried to pull over Levelland native Alyssa Basquez for a traffic violation.

When she didn’t stop her vehicle for the officer and ran a stop sign, the speeds increased and the chase began.

Captain Rust says she drove all over Levelland, going down some streets multiple times, but she never left the city limits.

During the chase, the report says there were items thrown from the sunroof and the driver’s side window of the vehicle. There is no word on what was thrown from the windows. 

The Hockley County Sheriff’s Office joined to assist in the chase. They were able to lay down spike strips to stop Basquez’s vehicle.

The chase reached speeds of 70 miles per hour.

Other than the popped tires on Basquez’s vehicle, there was no damage and no injuries were reported.

Captain Rust said there were people who came out to see what was going on and stood in the street to try and top the car. He wants to remind people to not do that and to stay safe.

"We are thankful no one was hurt in this chase," said Capt. Rust.

The chase ended at 1:50 a.m. and Basquez was arrested for evading arrest and for not having a drivers license.

She is currently in the Hockley County Jail on a combined $2,200 bond. The investigation is ongoing.
