TV Chase

It's often lamented in local news circles that there's nothing more sensationalistic than the fascination with the televised police pursuit. I, for one, love them. Especially when they go down just like they did on Friday night when the hovering news helos near Olympic and Robertson alerted me to the caper a little before midnight.

Turned on the news in time to see the LAPD pursuing a silver pickup truck just a few blocks from my house. Grabbed the scanner, muted the TV, and then it got about as realistic as possible--the helos provided the video and the LAPD Air Unit the audio!

Sort of anti-climactic, though. Suspect surrendered about 10 mins after I tuned in.
