Police chase ends in Sherman Oaks with driver of stolen vehicle in custody, LAPD says

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The driver of a stolen SUV was taken into custody in Sherman Oaks on Monday morning following a high-speed police chase through the San Fernando Valley, authorities said.

About 6:15 a.m., the vehicle spun out and the male suspect continued driving after a Los Angeles Police Department officer performed a PIT maneuver on a surface street in North Hollywood.

At least one of the SUV's tires blew out during the pursuit and the front brakes gave off an orange glow, apparently from overheating.

The chase made its way into a dimly lit residential area, where police performed a second PIT maneuver near the intersection of Hartsook Street and Stern Avenue. The driver then exited the damaged SUV and attempted to flee on foot.

He was quickly apprehended by several officers.
