A bizarre police pursuit ended dramatically on a Los Angeles freeway Monday night after LAPD officers nabbed a man they say fled after shooting his sister-in-law.
The slow-speed chase started as stop-and-go Monday night as CBSLA aerial footage shows the driver brake several times as he appeared to taunt police and even blatantly drop several items out of his window.
The suspect reportedly even yelled out his windows at officers, who unsuccessfully shot bean bags at the driver in a bid to stop him.
LAPD officers eventually pursued the driver, identified as Marcos Flores, onto the 405 Freeway, shutting down the busy highway in both directions during the hours-long chase.
The suspect at times sped up and other times drove tauntingly slow as officers stayed close behind.
After about two hours, aerial footage showed the LAPD initiate a pit maneuver, a tactic in which a police vehicle hits a suspect's in an attempt to bring it to a halt.
But in this instance, the suspect's car spun nearly 360 degrees before the driver managed to right the vehicle and continue.
Astonishingly, a second pit maneuver attempt also ended with the suspect driving away before the third finally brought the car to a halt.
As LAPD vehicles pinned the suspect's car between two cruisers, he put his hands up and cops released a K9 unit to subdue Flores.
Police told KTLA that Flores is wanted in connection with the attempted murder of his sister-in-law, which allegedly occurred Sunday.
Flores was arrested shortly after midnight Tuesday.
The victim Flores allegedly shot was struck in the upper body and remains hospitalized in critical condition, police said.
A motive for the shooting has not been disclosed.
