VIDEO: Wild California Vehicle Pursuit Ends with K-9 Takedown

A high-speed chase involving multiple agencies, several hit-and-run crashes and a violent carjacking in Orange County, CA, ended when a police K-9 took down the suspect. 

The man -- who was wanted for assault with a deadly weapon on an officer last week -- led police on a chase that started shortly before 5:30 p.m. Monday in Garden Grove. 

The suspect in that Feb. 18 incident was identified as 37-year-old Antonio Padilla Jr. of Riverside County. Padilla was also wanted for a current parole violation. 

Undercover detectives with the Garden Grove Police Department spotted Padilla driving a black GMC pickup truck Monday and attempted to stop him. That's when the pursuit started. 

He drove in the emergency lane of the freeway, blew through red lights and crashed into at least two other vehicles while trying to evade officers.
