FREEPORT — An attempt to investigate a possible drunken driver early Monday resulted in a two-hour pursuit stretching from Freeport throughout central Brazoria County, authorities said.

Freeport Police Officer Jared Miller pulled over a 2013 black Kia Sportage on the 700 block of North Brazosport Boulevard about 1 a.m. for speeding and detected the smell of alcohol, Freeport Police Chief Ray Garivey said. Miller also could see an assault rifle and shotgun in plain view, Garivey said.
