LBReport.com has learned that it was an L.A. County Sheriffs pursuit that ended in the area.
Several LBReport.com readers reported seeing the police activity, including law enforcement air units shining bright lights into the neighborhood. LBPD had some units to assist...but the pursuit was LASO's.
The L.A. County Sheriff's Lakewood station tells LBReport.com that a possible DUI or otherwise impaired driver allegedly disobeyed deputies...and after a pursuit through Lakewood and LB, he was taken into custody.
No injuries, but in the wake of the Los Altos area robbery a few hours earlier (separately reported by LBReport.com in which two suspects got away, lots of frazzled nerves.
