Officers noticed a “suspicious man” looking into cars and attempted to talk to him, said Sgt. Bonner with the Los Angeles Police Department.

The man jumped into a vehicle and a police pursuit began about 3:30 a.m.

During the chase, the pursuit driver appeared to have struck several other vehicles, Bonner said.

The car eventually came to a stop near the intersection of Manning Avenue and National Boulevard, but the driver did not come out.

Officers used a beanbag gun to break the car’s windows and took the man into custody, Bonner said.

No officers were injured in the incident.
