The driver of a possibly stolen pickup truck surrendered Thursday after leading an erratic chase through two Southern California counties.
The chase started about 2:30 p.m. in Downey, near Lakewood Boulevard and Gallatin Road, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
At one point, the suspect -- who was seen holding what appeared to be a gun -- ran from the white pickup truck he was driving, only to circle back to the vehicle and speed off again, according to Deputy Joanna Warren of the Sheriff's Information Bureau.
At one point, deputies stopped pursuing the driver due to safety concerns, but the suspect continued to drive in opposite lanes, on sidewalks and blow through stoplights.
Police began chasing the truck again in the Orange County area.
About 3:50 p.m., the suspect slowed to a stop on Pacific Coast Highway near Anaheim Place, got out of the pickup truck and surrendered.
It was not immediately clear if a gun was recovered.
