A suspected vandal led police on a pursuit starting in Bell around 10 p.m. Friday night, ending with a surrender in Huntington Park around 11:30 p.m.
Sky5 was overhead as the blue Suzuki sedan headed south on the 710 Freeway in the Bell area around 10:15 p.m.
At least six police units were following the car as it blew through red lights and intersections. A passenger could be seen inside the vehicle.
The sedan made its way into Vernon around 10:30 p.m. and then led police back to Bell minutes later.
The suspect made a U-turn on Florence Avenue around 10:40 p.m. as two helicopters hovered overhead. The Suzuki made its way onto the eastbound 105 Freeway at 10:50 p.m.
The vehicle continued to lead police through Cudahy past 11:10 p.m.
At 11:25 p.m., the suspect suddenly stopped the car in the middle of an intersection at Florence and Sante Fe avenues in Huntington Park. A driver and a passenger stuck their hands out of the front windows of the car and surrendered.
They were taken into custody at the scene.
Before the pursuit, officers observed the driver tagging a wall in the 5200 block of South Haul Lane, Bell police Sgt. Walker told KTLA.
As an officer tried to stop him, the person hopped into a car and took off, Walker said.
The suspected tagger fled with another passenger in the vehicle and allegedly tossed a handgun that was later recovered by officers.
Authorities did not identify the two people involved.
Earlier Friday, another car led authorities on a chase through southeast Los Angeles County following a failed traffic stop in Upland. The suspect driver and a passenger were taken into custody in Bell.
