The suspect in a 90 mph chase thought he had outstanding warrants but deputies later learned that his criminal record was clear.
Cameron County Sheriff's Department deputies arrested 25-year-old Martin Gasca on an evading arrest charge on Tuesday.
Records released in the case show that the chase happened off Teapa Drive just northeast of Brownsville back on April 21st.
A deputy was investigating a kidnapping case when he allegedly saw Gasca speeding in an SUV.
The deputy tried to pull over the car but Gasca allegedly sped off leading deputies on a chase through the neighborhood and then down Highway 48 at speeds up to 90 mph.
The chase ended off Zena Drive in Brownsville where Gasca fled on foot escaping deputies.
Gasca allegedly told his passenger that he had outstanding warrants and didn't want to be arrested.
Deputies ran a background check on Gasca and learned that he did not have any local warrants.
Court records show that Gasca has a criminal past for several misdemeanor crimes but those cases were already completed.
Deputies booked Gasca in the Cameron County Jail on an evading arrest charge on Tuesday where he was issued a $7,500 dollar bond.
