Driver in custody after leading police on slow-speed pursuit in West LA

The driver of a suspected stolen vehicle who led police on a slow-speed pursuit in West Los Angeles early Friday morning was taken into custody, officials said. 

After the pursuit came to an end, SkyFOX was overhead as the suspect appeared to surrender, then led Los Angeles police officers on a foot chase. He was captured by LAPD officers about half of a block from where the slow-speed pursuit came to an end. 

During the chase, the driver traveled along city streets and at one point, even drove over a sidewalk on Santa Monica Boulevard and into a neighborhood. 

Around 5 a.m., the driver stopped the truck near Manning and Tennessee avenues and remained inside for a few minutes.

It was reported the officers used non-lethal ammunition to break out windows of the truck.

The suspect’s name has not been released.
