The chase finally came to an end near the intersection of La Cienega and Imperial Highway in Westchester when officers rammed the suspect's car, aerial video from Sky5 showed.

Instead of exiting the vehicle and surrendering, the man appeared to be trying to drive away.

Officers quickly entered the car through the passenger-side door and yanked the driver out of the vehicle.

He was placed face down on the sidewalk and handcuffed.
