Troopers pursuing the suspect used a grappler, a device used to disable vehicles during a chase, to stop the car just west of the Loop 101 interchange. The driver was taken into custody without a struggle, DPS said.

At this time, it is unclear why the driver didn't initially stop for the troopers.  The incident is under investigation.
