    A man who led LAPD officers on a high-speed pursuit through the Northridge area and allegedly tried to run over a CHP officer was taken into custody Monday morning.

    Several officers could be seen pulling a man out of a black SUV and handcuffing him in the area of the 101 Freeway and Reseda Boulevard.

    The pursuit was linked to a California Highway Patrol chase in the Encino area about an hour earlier. The driver allegedly tried to run over a CHP officer while fleeing, police said in

    A black, new vehicle with no license plates was traveling more than 100 miles per hour. CHP officers pursued it until they lost sight of the suspect vehicle.
