EXPOSITION PARK (CBS) — Police arrested a suspected DUI driver, who had a woman and baby riding in the vehicle, after he led authorities on a wild chase across several freeways in South Los Angeles.

The suspect may be a parolee, according to emergency dispatchers, and was driving erratically on the streets of East Los Angeles when law enforcement tried to make a traffic stop.

He could be seen from SKY9 driving a white pick-up truck, with the windows rolled down, while apparently smoking a cigarette.

The chase moved onto the westbound 105 Freeway and then, as of 10:40 p.m., onto the northbound 110 Freeway in Exposition Park.

By 11 p.m. the suspect had reached the southbound 710 Freeway in Commerce. He exited at Florence Avenue and officers executed a PIT maneuver. The suspect’s vehicle spun into a stop and the suspect exited the vehicle with his hands raised.

At that point, a female passenger also exited the vehicle. Police searched the pick-up truck and found a baby in a carrier in the backseat, which they took into custody.

The driver and the female passenger were arrested.
