Police Chase Ends Where It Began With Arrests of Driver

A driver in a Porsche convertible with no plates led officers on a chase through Los Angeles County and into Orange County Friday night.

The driver and passenger were taken into custody hours later in Burbank at about 10 p.m. in an alley off the 300 block of Cordova Street when the man and woman exited the vehicle and walked into the backyard of a home. The car continued to roll and came to a stop when it hit another vehicle in the alley. 

"When I saw it, I automatically knew who it was," Garret Bowling, a neighbor, told NBC4. "He's been having issues in the my knowledge, he's on some medication and sometimes he gets off his medication."

From there, he headed south on the Long Beach (710) Freeway, east on the Riverside (91) Freeway in Orange County and then north on the Orange (57) Freeway, west on the Pomona (60) Freeway, north on the Hollywood (101) Freeway, where he exited on Barham Boulevard, continued onto Olive Avenue, then north on Hollywood Way, east onto Oak Street, then south into the alley of Cordova Street, where he and the woman ditched the vehicle. 

At some point during the pursuit, the convertible's top was lowered. 

The names of the man and woman were not disclosed.
