VIDEO: Los Angeles officers use PIT maneuver to stop suspect

Posted: Updated:
An early morning police pursuit in Los Angeles ended after the chase lasted for more than an hour.

KTLA reports an officer stopped the driver of a truck for speeding, but when the officer approached the driver’s door, the truck took off.

Officers used a spike strip to flatten the tires, but that didn’t slow the truck down too much.

The chase ended after an officer performed a PIT maneuver, caused the suspect’s truck to lose control.

The truck’s tires had disintegrated, and the driver could not get traction by spinning on its rims.

The suspect was arrested and taken into custody soon after.

The chase lasted more than 1 hour, and reached speeds up to 100 MPH.
