HACIENDA HEIGHTS (CBSLA.com) — Police pursued a robbery suspect Wednesday around Hacienda Heights and Whittier.
The suspect, alone in a white GMC pickup, had been driving recklessly and erratically, police said.
The man also seemed to taunt law enforcement during several points in the pursuit. He stopped the vehicle only to speed off moments later.
The chase began in Whittier.
Sky9’s Stu Mundel said the chase was bizarre. In addition to the driver’s stops and starts, he’s sometimes stopped in the middle of intersections.
At other junctures, the suspect was shown throwing objects out the window, including the keys.
There were half a dozen cars following the suspect and after one stop at least a dozen officers got out of their vehicles and had guns drawn on him.
The suspect was ordered out the vehicle, pulled up his shirt to show he didn’t have a weapon and was ordered to the ground.
