The incident began about 3 a.m. when officers suspected the driver of a white Mercedes-Benz was driving under the influence and attempted to pull her over, California Highway Patrol Officer Alex Rubio said.

Officers chased the car for more than 20 minutes before using a pit maneuver to stop the vehicle on Vermont Avenue just south of the 101 Freeway, Rubio said.

The driver remained in the vehicle until officers opened the door and took her into custody.

The driver, whose identity was not immediately released, was arrested on suspicion of DUI and felony evading, Rubio said.

No injuries were reported during the incident.
