Suspected car thief puts hands over head as he tries to turn himself in to California police Chopper from
KTLA of Footage originally showed at least two California Highway Patrol (CHP) cars heading into downtown Los Angeles on Thursday following a white Kia car that was believed to have been stolen.
While following the initial chase, a station reporter noted how the driver was going "very slowly" and other traffic was "light" at the time, creating imminent danger.
But when the station filmed it live, its reporter noted how the pursuing police car was "pulled away."
After dropping off the female passenger, the driver eventually pulled over in the parking lot of Ralph's supermarket, the agency said.
His head, which has been seen twisted, clearly assumes that the cops will soon swoop in to arrest him.
However, "no one tried to detain him," the station said, though it did not disclose what he did next.
CHP gave chase after the driver began jumping over a red light. On the way to the city center where I confirmed that I gave up. The LAPD tracked the car for a while too, but pulled away, the outlet said.
There was no indication whether police were still investigating the alleged car theft.
