HOUSTON, Texas - Police in Texas recently swarmed a neighborhood to catch an escapee -- but this was no ordinary police chase.

The suspect? A miniature horse!

Dashcams were rolling as police tried to stop the little horse from galloping through the neighborhood.

Police tried and failed to corral him. But luckily, one officer had a secret weapon in his car!

A local teenager, who is also a competitive calf-roper, happened to be doing a ride-along with an officer that night.

He grabbed a rope and was able to finally catch the horse!
