Sauce Walka was arrested after allegedly leading the police on a high-speed chase. On Wednesday, Houston’s local law enforcement took the artist into custody in an operation involving multiple police units, as stated in court documents.
The chase, per the Harris County Sheriff’s County, began when police attempted to pull over a vehicle for a routine traffic stop. The officer reportedly felt compelled to inspect Walka after he allegedly ran a red light.
However, the vehicle failed to stop, leading to a high-speed pursuit. Police reports suggest that the 130 mph chase lasted two miles, according to ABC 13, with the rapper allegedly weaving in and out of traffic at high speeds.

Sauce Walka Speaks Out About The Incident
Court documents further mention him posing a significant danger to other road users as cops attempted to catch up with the escaping vehicle. The rapper reportedly crashed his car and ended the chase, leading to his arrest on charges of evading law enforcement.
They took Walka to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries before booking him into the Harris County Joint Processing Center. While the incident details are still emerging, Walka reportedly did not have an attorney representing him after his arrest.
Police later released him on a $15,000 bond, and he is expected to appear in court on Friday.
In a phone call later shared on his Instagram Story, the hip-hop star addressed the situation to his fans, assuring them that he was doing fine.
“I want to tell all my fans that I appreciate y’all for y’all care and concern,” he said. “I’m good, I’m straight, you know what I’m saying? I made it through a catastrophic accident, and the Super Saiyan that I am, I’m still here, I’m good, I’m healthy, and will continue to be wealthy.”
Walka concluded the phone call by saying he hoped for his release soon and plans to drop a music video “because I know y’all miss me,” he added.
Walka, well-known for his rap songs in Houston, has been active in the music industry since 2007. His legal problems date back to 2009, when he pleaded guilty to deadly conduct after a shooting at a concert at the Texas Southern University. Some of his most recognized songs include ‘Ghetto Gospel,’ ‘Where Was You At,’ and ‘Big Drip Squad.’
