Slow Speed Police Pursuit of Black SUV Goes From East LA to Downtown LA


The California Highway Patrol was in pursuit of a black SUV in the East Los Angeles and Commerce areas Tuesday.

Newschopper4 Alpha was over the chase around 5:15 p.m in the city of Commerce, coming from the East LA area.

The driver continued on surface streets and was stopping at stop signs, moving westward towards the downtown LA area.

Around 5:30, the driver was in the Skid Row area, driving at low speeds.

The CHP ended up going into tracking mode soon after, taking vehicles away from the chase and following the pursuit vehicle from the air.

Around 5:50 p.m., the CHP helicopter appeared to pull away from the vehicle, as did Newschopper4 Alpha since there were no police vehicles following the SUV. The SUV was last seen in South LA.

It was not immediately clear what led to the pursuit.
