LOS ANGELES (AP) — A shirtless man is in custody after leading Los Angeles-area authorities on an auto pursuit that ended in a Venice Beach parking lot where he was taken down by a stun gun.
News helicopters showed the scene Friday afternoon as the pursuit transitioned from a freeway to city streets and then entered the parking lot, where the driver finally stopped and got out of the SUV.
The man started walking away, but officers equipped with guns and less-lethal weapons closed in and he suddenly fell flat on his back.
Officers swarmed the man as beachgoers gathered to watch.
Police tell KTLA the man was suspected of assault and making criminal threats against his mother.
