LOS ANGELES (CABC) – A driver was arrested after making “donuts” and speeding across Los Angeles during a dangerous chase Thursday night.

The AIR7 HD was chasing around 9:30 p.m. as the driver was in a black sedan in the Elysian Park area on Interstate 5.

Prior to this, Glendale Police had been pursuing a suspect who had driven recklessly through shallow streets and then did a “donut” before climbing onto the highway.

When the chase was in the Chinatown area, the driver was again spinning in circles at the intersections.

There were times when a suspect would drive on the wrong side of the road or stop in the middle of the street before taking off again. At one point, the authorities seemed to stop prosecuting the suspect for erratic driving.

The suspect also crashed into another vehicle and came close to hitting other vehicles.

The manhunt passed through several areas, including downtown Los Angeles, East Los Angeles, and southern Los Angeles

When the chase entered Leimert Park, the rear bumper of the suspect’s car was stuck after a ditch maneuver.

The California Highway Patrol says the suspect’s sister told officers that her brother had bipolar disorder and was having a manic episode.

In the end, the suspect in the South Los Angeles area surrendered after more than an hour in the chase.
