Dad And Daughter Chase Burglary Suspects
Huston surgeon and daughter play chicken with thieves
A father and daughter team chased down the men who burglarized their Houston, Texas, home Friday, and ended up facing the thieves in a game of chicken they won't soon forget.
Kevin Smith was just getting home from a business trip when he and his daughter Alana saw a red pickup truck pull out of their driveway, CNN reports. Alana's sister Kara had been home at the time. When Kara didn't answer her cell phone the two feared the worst and began following the truck. Smith recorded the chase as his daughter drove.
Twice the suspects threw their truck into reverse, smashing into the front of the Smith's Audi A8. Alana and her father were undeterred however and they eventually cornered the thieves. Desperate, they swung the truck around and headed straight for the Smith's front end.
The head-on crash pushed both cars into a ditch. Smith called the police and two of the three men were arrested. They are now facing criminal charges. Kevin and Alana suffered minor injuries, but were able to retrieve televisions and laptops from the truck that had been taken from their home. Alana's sister was also found safe.
