VIDEO: Man Leads LAPD on High-Speed Chase, Tries to Escape on Skateboard

A suspect wanted for allegedly stealing a BMW sedan led police on a chase in Van Nuys, Calif., bailed out on foot and attempted to get away on a skateboard before he was blocked by a good Samaritan in a pickup truck as officers arrived.

On eastbound Sherman Way, the suspect crashed into the back of another vehicle in stopped traffic. The suspect then jumped out of the BMW and ran into oncoming traffic with a longboard skateboard in his arms. He ran northbound on Valjean Avenue, jumped on his skateboard and rode the sidewalk for less than half a block before running into traffic again, ABC7 Los Angeles reports.

A pickup-truck driver blocked him in traffic, then accelerated and turned right on Cantlay Street and blocked the suspect at a gate. The suspect was immediately arrested without incident.
