Watch These Folks Take Down Driver In High-Speed Chase
Some onlookers took matters into their own hands and helped take down a man fleeing from police on Wednesday night in Sherman Oaks.
Around 10 p.m., LAPD officers began chasing the man, who was wanted for reckless driving after zipping at speeds of up to 110 miles on the 101 Freeway near Tampa Avenue, KTLA reports. He exited the freeway and then ditched his car at the Courtyard Marriott at Ventura Boulevard and Orion Avenue.
That's when he fled on foot, and two Good Samaritans along with undercover police chased him, ABC7 reports. They nabbed him and held him down until other LAPD officers showed up and arrested him.
