Driver in custody after pursuit ends with PIT maneuver in Covina area

Local news

One person was taken into custody after a pursuit through the San Gabriel Valley area Tuesday evening.

Aerial video from Sky5 showed the pursuit suspect driving erratically in a white sedan, at one point quickly swerving onto opposing lanes and narrowly missing another vehicle stopped at a traffic signal in Covina.

A patrol car could be seen attempting several PIT maneuvers that the driver managed to evade.

As the chase led onto Hollenbeck Avenue, a patrol car again attempted to hit the white sedan, apparently scraping alongside another car that was stopped at a traffic signal on opposing lanes.

Another cruiser then quickly performed a successful PIT maneuver, spinning the sedan as at least three other patrol cars blocked it from all sides, bringing the case to an end around 6:50 p.m., video shows.

Police could be seen putting handcuffs on the driver and taking the person into custody.

It’s unclear what prompted the chase and no further details were immediately available.
