A man and woman were arrested in Norwalk by Buena Park police after a pursuit in which the suspects crashed into parked cars and a patrol car, authorities said Friday.
The pursuit started at 8:11 p.m. Thursday when officers tried to pull over a tan Honda Accord for a vehicle code violation and the possibility it was stolen, but the driver refused to stop, Buena Park police Sgt. Patrick Carney said.
During the pursuit, a gun was thrown from the vehicle, Carney said. It was recovered.
The suspects led officers into a cul de sac around the 11900 block of Fidel Avenue where the driver crashed into two parked cars and a patrol car before the suspects bailed out about 8:40 p.m., the sergeant said.
L.A. County sheriff’s deputies based in Norwalk helped Buena Park police set up a perimeter to contain the suspects, he said. They were arrested about 10:25 p.m., said Sgt. D. McCabe of the sheriff’s Norwalk Station.
The driver could face a charge of assault on a police officer due to crashing into the patrol car, Carney said.
