It started around 11 p.m. Sunday. LAPD officers pursued the stolen car until they deployed spike strips just after 1 a.m.
The suspect displayed gang signs and wove dangerously in and out of traffic during the two-hour pursuit.
KTLA spoke to one commuter who was nearly hit by the suspect.
“I had clocked out for work and he comes right by me and almost T-boned me,” Luke Malbry recalled.
“There’s a lot of people out here at one o’clock in the morning. I see a lot of kids right now outside, so I’m glad he didn’t hit anybody.”
Once his left tire blew out, the suspect surrendered and was arrested. Police said he had a number of weapons in the car.
