Police said they arrested a hit and run suspect in Houston who allegedly tried to hide from officers by jumping into an open manhole.

An officer saw the man, whose name was not released, crash his car on the Gulf Freeway on Sunday and flee from the scene on foot.

The officer gave chase and saw the man jump into an open manhole and refuse to emerge when ordered.

The Houston Police Department said that firefighters checked the pipe for noxious gases before members of the police dive team went in and retrieved the suspect.
