Police chase today: The driver of a stolen car leads the California Highway Patrol in a high-speed chase near Los Angeles; 3 in custody


LOS ANGELES — The driver of a stolen SUV and two passengers were arrested Wednesday morning after leading California Highway Patrol officers on a high-speed chase through multiple cities, swerving dangerously in and out of traffic while when crossing highways and surface streets.

Shortly before 11:30 a.m., the suspect reached speeds of over 100 mph on the northbound 110 Freeway near Los Angeles.

No CHP patrol vehicles were seen immediately behind the vehicle. It was unclear whether the agency deliberately decided to temporarily disengage on the ground, as a law enforcement helicopter was following overhead.

As the chase headed towards Westchester, a CHP car was again seen following the suspect closely.

AIR7 HD video showed at least half a dozen CHP vehicles involved in the chase as it snaked through a residential area of ​​Playa del Rey, just north of Los Angeles International Airport.

At approximately 11:45 a.m., the vehicle came to rest against a curb when CHP officers stopped and positioned themselves with weapons drawn.

The driver and two passengers, all male, exited the SUV with their hands raised and were arrested without incident.
