Man Arrested After Police Chase on Freeway

A man accused of stealing a Honda Accord before leading officers on a car chase across multiple Los Angeles freeways and streets, followed by a foot chase, was arrested Saturday morning.

Authorities took the suspect, identified as Antonio Regalado, into custody at  2 a.m., said Officer Raymond Baron of the Los Angeles Police Department's West L.A. Division.

The K-9 Unit helped locate Regalado -- a 22-year-old Los Angeles resident with numerous outstanding warrants and aliases -- at his home, Baron said. He was then transferred to the LAPD's Mission Division station.

During the pursuit, Regalado made a transition to the southbound 110 Freeway at the Arroyo Seco Parkway near downtown Los Angeles, before exiting and driving erratically on streets, eventually getting back on the same freeway headed north.

He then transitioned onto the northbound Golden State before merging
onto the westbound 134 Freeway in Burbank. When he exited onto the
street, a woman got out of the vehicle at 10:35 p.m., Officer Peter Bishop of
the California Highway Patrol said, adding that she was placed under arrest at
11 p.m. Her name was not immediately available, he added.

Regalado exited the vehicle on foot at 10:40 p.m., Bishop said, leading
to the temporary establishment of a perimeter in the area of Coldwater Canyon
Drive and Cherokee Lane near the Los Angeles-Beverly Hills border, as officers
pursued the suspect on foot.
