Freeway Chase of DUI Suspect Culminates in Cerritos Collar

The chase began about 12:30 p.m. at Angeles Crest and ended on the eastbound 91 Freeway in Cerritos, a Los Angeles County sheriff's sergeant told Patch.

A man who allegedly exhibited "bizarre" behavior in Angeles Crest led law enforcement officers on a chase from the mountains to a Cerritos freeway, where he was pulled out of his SUV and arrested, officials said.

The chase began about 12:30 p.m., at Angeles Crest, Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Paul Gallo told Patch.

A caller warned authorities that the man might have been drinking and was acting strangely, the sergeant said.

"He was making weird statements and weird comments," Gallo told Patch.

"'Bizarre' is what the caller said," the sergeant related.

"He took off, deputies tried to stop him, he would not yield, Gallo said.

The chase went on a number of freeways, including the 2, the 134, the 5, the 110 and eventually to the eastbound 91, where he was stopped near the southbound 605 interchange, the sergeant said.

California Highway Patrol officers pulled him out of his blue Nissan Xterra and helped take him into custody, the sergeant told Patch.

He was booked into the county jail on suspicion of DUI and evading peace officers.
