A person suspected of driving recklessly while under the influence of drugs or alcohol was taken into custody by officers with the California Highway Patrol Wednesday after a nearly hourlong pursuit through South Los Angeles.

The chase began at around 5:30 p.m. as the driver was traveling in southbound lanes of the 110 Freeway before exiting at Florence Avenue onto surface streets.

The suspect was eventually taken into custody by CHP near the intersection of West 62nd Street and South Broadway.
