Police have the suspects’ car and he’s in custody. “Victory Parade” over.
A man who led Los Angeles police on a slow-speed chase through San Fernando Valley Friday night was stopped by a bystander who jumped in front of the car.
Police began following a black Ford Mustang in Reseda shortly before 6 p.m. The chase continued into Tarzana and Encino. The suspect was wanted for possibly driving under the influence.
Throughout the chase, the man waved to bystanders and flashed a “V”-sign with his hand. A sign that read, “Victory Parade,” hung on the side of the driver’s side door.
At about 6:50 p.m., a bystander walked in front of the slow-moving car. The driver of the car stopped in front of him, put his hands in the air and exited. The bystander then pushed the man onto the hood of a police cruiser, before both men were detained.
