Cameras captured a driver breaking into dance following a pursuit in downtown Los Angeles Wednesday night.

Police attempted to stop the woman for driving erratically near Seventh Street and Towne Avenue around 10:10 p.m. when she failed to yield and a pursuit began, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Ramirez said.

The driver stayed on surface streets, making circles, and a spike strip was used near Seventh Street and Maple Avenue South.

She continued toward the Los Angeles Times building less than two miles away when she ran over another spike strip and the vehicle came to a stop at the parking lot.

The woman then exited the vehicle and danced, appearing to smile as she shook her body and waved her arms.

She returned to the vehicle, continuing to dance in the driver’s seat before police yanked her from the car, held her down and appeared to handcuff her.

She was detained around 10:22 p.m., Ramirez said.

The woman was booked for felony evading and allegedly driving a stolen vehicle.
