You can end up in prison for evading arrest. Running from the police really ticks them off.
In Texas, a person commits the crime of evading arrest when he or she intentionally flees a police officer to obstruct them from conducting a search or arrest. If you are charged with evading arrest in a motor vehicle, you are facing serious felony criminal consequences in addition to the initial charge the police officer claims to have been investigating you for.
