LAPD Officials Take Pursuit Suspect Into Custody After Using Bean Bag
Posted August 16
Los Angeles, CA — A man who led LAPD officials on a short pursuit in the South L.A. area has been taken into custody Tuesday night, aerial video from Sky5 showed.
The pursuit began about 8:40 p.m. when authorities spotted a stolen vehicle near the intersection of Manchester Boulevard and McKinley Avenue. It came to an end near the intersection of Avalon Boulevard and Corbin Avenue about 9 p.m.
Police then surrounded the vehicle.
The driver got out with his hands up and police deployed a bean bag that hit the man's upper torso, causing him to lean forward and eventually turn himself in without incident, aerial video showed.
Officers searched the badly-damaged vehicle for possible evidence.
The driver apparently crashed with a big rig during the pursuit. Aerial video showed the stalled big rig near where the pursuit ended.
