PASADENA, Texas — With police hot on his tail and sirens screaming behind him, Erasmo Hernandez  took to Facebook on Thursday, giving his friends a front-row seat to his high-speed getaway.

According to police, the incident started with a narcotics search warrant being served at Hernandez’s home.

Hernandez apparently didn’t want to stick around so he led police on a 30-minute chase from Pasadena to southeast Houston and the 35-year-old decided to share his escape with the world.

Police said Hernandez’s Hyundai Sonata got a flat tire about 20 minutes in, which made it difficult to go much farther.

Hernandez faces charges of felony possession of a weapon and evading arrest.

Police say the live Facebook video can be used against him in court.
