Woman Arrested After Ramping LAPD Vehicle During Pursuit – NBC Los Angeles

A woman suspected of carjacking was arrested Monday night in Hollywood when she crashed into a reversing police cruiser after leading police on a chase that began in Monterey Park.

The chase began at 10:07 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department officer Norma Eiseman said. The suspect was driving a gray vintage Toyota on the 10, 710 and Hollywood freeways.

A confrontation between police and the suspect ensued after she put the Toyota in reverse and collided with an LAPD vehicle on the Western Avenue exit ramp of the northbound Hollywood Freeway, causing smoke and water from the police vehicle.

About a dozen LAPD officers with guns drawn surrounded the suspect’s vehicle during the standoff. LAPD Central Area sent out a tweet at 10:29 p.m., reporting that “officers are currently negotiating with the suspect for a peaceful surrender.”

A team of officers used a shield to break the driver’s side window of the car and removed the woman at approximately 10:35 p.m.
