Man in custody after Friday night police chase

- A man accused of stealing a Honda Accord before leading officers on a car chase across multiple Los Angeles freeways and streets, followed by a foot chase, was arrested.

Authorities took the suspect, identified as Antonio Regalado, into custody at  2 a.m., Officer Raymond Baron of the Los Angeles Police Department's West L.A. Division told City News Service.

The K-9 Unit helped locate Regalado -- a 22-year-old Los Angeles resident with numerous outstanding warrants and aliases -- at his home, Baron said. He was then transferred to the LAPD's Mission Division station.

The LAPD began the pursuit at 9:45 p.m. Friday as the driver headed south on the Golden State (5) Freeway in Burbank.

Regalado then made the transition to the southbound Harbor (110) Freeway at the Arroyo Seco Parkway near downtown Los Angeles, before exiting and driving erratically on streets, eventually getting back on the same freeway headed north.

He then transitioned onto the northbound Golden State before merging onto the westbound Ventura (134) Freeway in Burbank. When he exited onto the street, a woman got out of the vehicle at 10:35 p.m., Officer Peter Bishop of the California Highway Patrol said, adding that she was placed under arrest at 11 p.m. Her name was not immediately available, he added.

Regalado exited the vehicle on foot at 10:40 p.m., Bishop said, leading to the temporary establishment of a perimeter in the area of Coldwater Canyon Drive and Cherokee Lane near the Los Angeles-Beverly Hills border, as officers pursued the suspect on foot.
