Driver leads LAPD on slow-speed chase in downtown area 2022-04-30 01:22:47


LOS ANGELES (CABC) – A police driver leads a slow-speed chase on the shallow streets of the Mid City area on Friday night.

There were several times in the chase where the driver would stop the car and get out to signal to the police officers and make hand gestures to simulate shooting from a pistol.

Each time, the driver would return to the vehicle and continue driving at speeds not exceeding 40 mph.

Multiple LAPD patrol cars were behind him as the driver, suspected of the assault, continued to drive and stop. Police say the man may have been armed.
