Police chased a stolen vehicle through surface streets in South Los Angeles early Wednesday afternoon, quickly arresting a driver.

The vehicle was stolen and 77th Division units were in pursuit, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Jack Richter said about 12:30 p.m. He was not certain when the chase began.

At least five patrol cars could be seen following the vehicle as it weaved through traffic.

The green Honda sedan stopped  and officers pulled the driver out of the car and onto the street, where they handcuffed the individual.

The driver appeared from a distance to be male, but Richter later said a female driver was taken into custody in the chase.
