During the chase, the suspect drove a white van erratically on the 10 and 405 freeways and weaved through traffic, almost hitting other vehicles in residential neighborhoods.
The suspect eventually came to a dead end, jumped out of the van and began running along a nearby bike path.

The suspect appeared to run out of energy, but ran onto the 90 Freeway into oncoming traffic and made it to the other side of the freeway - dodging vehicles in an attempt to escape police.
AIR7 HD was over the chase at about 5:50 p.m. as several LAPD vehicles were in pursuit. At times, the suspect was driving at high speeds and ignored red lights.
After abandoning the van, the suspect ran through a grassy area north of the 90 Freeway, where police caught up to him to take him into custody in the Del Rey neighborhood.
