Los Angeles police briefly pursued a driver in the San Fernando Valley on Wednesday afternoon, finally taking the motorist and another person into custody near the Sherman Oaks Galleria.
The pursuit began near Woodley Avenue and Roscoe Boulevard in North Hills about 3:15 p.m., when officers spotted a stolen vehicle and the driver refused to stop for them, according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Mike Lopez.
The chase went into the Sepulveda Pass area just before 3:30 p.m., both on surface streets and on the 405 and 101 freeways.
The vehicle appeared to be an older-model white sedan that was driving at high speeds, crossing over the double yellow line and blowing through stop signs, aerial video from Sky5 showed.
After the driver stopped his car, he fled on foot toward the mall and was taken into custody by several officers who appeared to tackle him on the sidewalk outside.
One officer tumbled forcefully onto the ground as he ran toward the suspect, aerial video showed.
Two people were in custody, LAPD Officer Jane Kim said. It was not immediately clear if the second individual was a passenger.
