Pursuit Comes to Life for NBC4 Viewer

A man caught on video a pursuit outside his window while watching the chase on NBC4 Sunday

NBC4 viewer Jason Lee was shooting video of a pursuit on our 11 p.m. newscast Sunday when the pursuit came to him.

At least a half-dozen patrol cars pursued the driver behind the wheel of a stolen Toyota Camry as it weaved through LA and Hawthorne for two hours.

It ended in Inglewood when the driver -- a boy -- finally gave up. Authorities aren’t releasing his age.

He was booked into custody on charges including car theft and assault with a deadly weapon.

Lee told NBC4 that, at first, he thought the pursued driver was going to come through the window.

By Friday, Lee's video had garnered more than 4.4 million views on YouTube.

Update (March 8, 2013): Clarified Lee's description of incident.
