Thursday afternoon Weslaco Police were chasing a reckless driver.
The incident started in Donna when two men allegedly threw a rock at a woman.
According to police the men fled the scene and later drove through Weslaco attempting to take the woman to the hospital.
The chase ended and the people inside bailed.
With two people in custody and two on the loose police called the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Air and Marine for a helicopter for backup.
But instead of responding, officers were told the helicopter had no gas.
