The man was driving at an excess speed and was weaving in and out of traffic, aerial video from Sky5 showed.

At one point, the driver got stuck between two vehicles after getting off the 5 Freeway in East Los Angeles, video showed.

The driver was heading on surface streets at high speeds and nicked a sedan before getting on the 10 Freeway.

He then jumped of his vehicle near the New Avenue exit, climbed a fence and ran near Mark Keppel High School in Alhambra. He ran through the parking lot of the school while students were fleeing into nearby buildings. One student said he saw the man run through the school, but he was not armed.

The school was eventually placed on lockdown before a trained supervisor on campus took down the suspect and others held him down before police arrived.

"He picked the wrong school campus to jump on to," principal John Scanlan said. "We're extremely prepared as a district."

The pursuit apparently originated out of the Northeast LAPD Division and the man was apparently wanted on suspicion of stealing , officials said.
