A domestic dispute suspect accused of assaulting a law enforcement officer led officers on a chase from East Los Angeles to South Los Angeles Tuesday evening, with a baby in the car, before surrendering.
Deputies were sent to the 600 block of Burger Avenue, near South Humphreys Avenue and the Long Beach (710) Freeway, about 8:45 p.m., according to Lt. Jose Sandoval of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s East Los Angeles Station.
“The suspect assaulted law enforcement,” Sandoval said, but he was not able to elaborate.
The suspect then fled the scene, and the California Highway Patrol pursued him in the downtown, Mid-City and South Los Angeles areas.
The suspect pulled over near Crenshaw and Jefferson boulevards shortly before 9:30 p.m., after sparks were flying from his car’s rims, according to Officer Patrick Kimball of the California Highway Patrol.
He exited the car with a baby in his arms and was taken into custody after handing the baby to officers.
