4 People Arrested After High-Speed Chase On 3 Freeways
WEST LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Three men and a woman were arrested Friday after leading Los Angeles police on a high-speed chase.
Los Angeles police notified the California Highway Patrol around 11:20 a.m. that they were following a white Porsche SUV, reportedly stolen out of San Diego, on the southbound Ventura (101) freeway.
After CHP joined the pursuit, the suspects led officers on a high-speed chase, reaching 100 mph, on the southbound San Diego (405) Freeway and then onto the westbound Santa Monica (10) Freeway.
The driver hit a guardrail near Bundy Drive off the 10 Freeway and took off on foot. Police arrested the passenger.
Officers chased the suspect to a home in the 2800 block of Pearl Street near Butler Avenue where changed his clothes — out of red long pants into short white pants and a different shirt.
He surrendered to police around 11:50 a.m. and was taken into custody.
Officials searched the property after his arrest. It was unclear if the suspect was familiar with the residence.
Police briefly shut down the 10 freeway as a result of the chase.
It remained unclear hours later why four arrests were made.
