Father accused of soliciting 15-year-old girl leads police on chase

A Sacramento man wanted for soliciting a 15-year-old girl for sex was arrested after a police chase with his three juvenile sons in the vehicle Tuesday night.

Houston Smith, 55, was arrested for child endangerment, driving under the influence, evading police, making criminal threats and pimping and pandering, Elk Grove police said.

Around 9 p.m., police spotted Smith's vehicle on Calvine Road. When officers tried to pull him over, Smith drove away and on to Highway 99 North. Police said he was going 60 mph on the highway before taking the Florin Road exit. Smith eventually pulled over in a business's parking lot.

Police said inside of the vehicle officers found Smith's three juvenile sons. The boys were not hurt during the incident and released to a relative.

Smith also showed signs of impairment when he was arrested. He was booked into the main jail, police said.
