An ivory-colored Porche being pursued by the California Highway Patrol took a scenic, albeit quick, tour of Echo Park last night as it raced northbound on Glendale Boulevard around 10:30 p.m., according to The Eastsider LA.

Officers at the scene reportedly did not know where the pursuit began but took action to end it in Echo Park. Traffic control at the intersection of Glendale Boulevard and Alvarado Street was handled by LAPD, said an officer from the Northeast Division, and CHP officers were able to take the man into custody after speeding towards the sports car in both directions.

A witness inside Tacos Mexico near Glendale and Berkeley Street reported that squad cars came from the north and south, cornering the driver on Glendale Boulevard. The Porsche was then relocated to stripmall parking lot and scooped up by a tow truck.
