League City Police arrested a 21-year-old man after a brief chase south along I-45 Sunday, spokesman Sgt. Robert Murphy said.

Police responded around 1:30 p.m. to a call of a reckless driver around the intersection of I-45 and FM 517, Murphy said.

Police followed the car for a few minutes to the area north of the Emmett F. Lowry Expressway, he said.

No one was hurt in the pursuit and it did not cause any wrecks, Murphy said.

A man was arrested for fleeing from police, Murphy said.

Police did not suspect alcohol or drugs were a factor in the chase initially, Murphy said. The investigation is still ongoing.
