Los Angeles Police Chase Southern California Style; Helicopter and Street View, Keep Your Seat in the Living Room

NBC LA NEWSCHOPPER 4 Helicopter view and street view of a Los Angeles are police chase on Century Boulevard and Rosewood Avenue.

While KNBC-TV Channel 4 covered a police chase through Los Angeles southwestern suburban Inglewood late Sunday, January 12, 2013, YouTube user Jason Lee had his video camera aimed at his television, which was tuned to KNBC-TV with an aerial view of the chase. As the KNBC-TV’s helicopter showed LAPD and Inglewood police pursuing a stolen vehicle, Lee’s video pans right out his living room window to show the chase taking a right turn from westbound Century Boulevard to Southbound Rosewood Avenue.

“I thought he was going to crash through the window … real life Grand Theft Auto” at the “Inglewood Raceway.”

The pursuit began about 11 p.m., and the driver displayed gang signs and weaved in and out of oncoming lanes of traffic. The male offender, whose name has not been released, was arrested after police deployed spike strips, blowing out a tire on the car. Los Angeles Police stopped the offender with the spike strip at Arbor Vitae and Oak Streets.

Police reported the man had several weapons in the car.
