Orland Lewis had been taken into custody on a separate charge following the Feb. 15 collision, but was released on bail before being tied to the hit-and-run, according to a statement from the Hawthorne Police Department.

Authorities received tips that Lewis had been seen several times at a Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. About 2:30 p.m. Sunday, the suspect and Tavon Bogues were spotted at the store, prompting a response from Beverly Hills police, the news release said.

The two men fled on foot and were eventually cornered by officers in a Subway restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard, police said.

According to the the statement, Lewis struggled with the officers and threw a loaded .25-caliber handgun behind the counter before being apprehended.

He and Bogues were arrested on suspicion of “a variety of charges including fraud, resisting arrest and possessing a loaded firearm,” Hawthorne police said, adding that other charges were pending.
