Officers were called about 2 a.m. to a convenience store in the 3400 block of South Garland Avenue, where someone in a dark-colored Chrysler 300 had chased and rammed a Mazda, police said.

Police later identified Tovar as the driver of the Chrysler. He fled when officers arrived at the store, police said.

He drove through Dallas and into Irving, where he stopped at a residence in the 1200 block of Rindie Street, police said. He went into a home but later surrendered to police and was arrested.

The people in the Mazda told police Tovar had chased them from Dallas into Garland, where he rammed the vehicle until it was disabled. Tovar’s ex-girlfriend and another person were in the Mazda, police said.

Police said that Tovar was being held in the Garland jail and that bail had not been set.
