She was seen handcuffed by officers just before 1 p.m. after driving at a high rate of speed through surface streets as police trailed her, aerial footage from Sky5 shows. At 12:55 p.m., she was seen crossing over a double yellow line and traveling toward oncoming traffic as she tried to avoid being pulled over.

A minute to two later, the female driver was seen jumping out of the vehicle and running from the scene before being taken down by officers as a dog followed her from behind in North Hills.

A bystander later found the dog and turned it over to officers at the scene, who took it into their custody, according to LAPD.

Authorities have not released other information, including the identity of the driver or details about the crime of which she is accused.
