The trouble began when police said the pair ran a red light in their SUV and T-boned another vehicle. They fled the scene, ran into a nearby restaurant and ordered tacos, KSAT reported. As they waited for their food, the police called the restaurant and described them. Employees told authorities that the couple was in the restaurant, and as police walked toward the restaurant, the man and woman ran and tried to hide.
