(FOX 11/CNS) - Two men and a woman in a car that was reported stolen were arrested on Wednesday in Anaheim at the end of a chase that began in Compton.
It was unclear exactly when the chase began, but it started when a deputy spotted the vehicle, according to a watch commander at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Compton Station.
The driver bailed out of the car about 5:15 p.m. in the area of Western High School and was arrested nearby, close to the intersection of Western Avenue and Lindacita Lane, after his run for freedom turned quickly into a slow walk.
A man and a woman got out of the vehicle and waited until police came and took them into custody.
Police went from hot pursuit into tracking mode as the vehicle made its way south through the Long Beach area and into Orange County.
