VIDEO: Man Leads Cops On Vehicle Pursuit, Starts Breakdancing In Road
Los Angeles, CA – A man led police on a slow-speed chase before getting out and breaking out in dance moves on Tuesday while police held him at gunpoint (video below).
The suspect was driving in the San Fernando Valley when police tried to stop him for reckless driving, according to KABC.
The suspect didn’t drive more than 60 mph and didn’t drive recklessly to get away, but he refused to pull over.
Eventually, the suspect slowed to about 20 mph and exited the highway.
Police followed the suspect closely and then were able to get him stopped by performing a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver.
A California Highway Patrol cruiser bumped the car and spun it out so that it was sideways, according to the Ventura County Star.
The man then got out of the car and obeyed police commands until he started to breakdance, according to KABC.
In the video, the suspect stood and looked over his shoulder while walking slowly away from the police with his hands raised above his head.
The suspect then came to a stop, lifted his left foot, and began to breakdance. The dancing continues for about 20 seconds before the suspect stopped and raised his hands in the air.
When the man stopped dancing, police moved in and took him into custody.
Witness Jose Suarez told KNBC that the suspect "could have hurt us all" with his erratic driving.
“He just started dancing. I mean, just, don't do drugs, that's what I've got to say," Suarez said, according to KNBC.
