LOS ANGELES (KABC) — A car chase Wednesday night resulted in a long standoff that ended with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies arresting a suspect who refused to surrender.
In a bizarre game of cat-and-mouse, the suspect held the car on the street for several minutes and slowly pulled away as MPs began rushing at him.
AIR7 HD was over the scene just before 10:20 p.m. as the Montebello standoff was just getting underway.
At one point, the man got out of his car and began yelling at the deputies, who were only a few meters away.
The incident sparked a huge response from the authorities. In one instance, at least seven patrol cars were pulled over in the middle of the road behind the suspect’s car.
Authorities used barbed strips, shredding at least one of the suspect’s tires on the suspect’s car.
The chase eventually ended with deputies pulling the suspect out of the car while it was being stopped.
The pursuit began in East LA
