Police nabbed three suspects who bolted from their car and into the trees and brush near the Skirball Center amid a high-speed pursuit Tuesday afternoon that ended in the Sepulveda Pass.
One of the suspects, who was wearing bright red pants, climbed a hill above the center, but was taken into custody without incident around 3 p.m. Two other suspects were apprehended about an hour later.
Police used motorcycles, K9s and other equipment in their search, and ABC7 reported the third suspect sustained dog bites and was hit with a Taser.
The chase jammed rush-hour traffic through the Sepulveda Pass.
The Skirball Center Drive off-ramp on the southbound side of the freeway was closed and the Getty Center Drive off-ramp on the northbound side was also shut down for about three hours.
The chase unfolded at 1:59 p.m. in the western San Fernando Valley and continued into the Sepulveda Pass, where the suspects' vehicle wound up trapped in heavy traffic, prompting them to bail out of the vehicle and run into the trees and brush alongside Sepulveda Boulevard.
Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Christopher No said the suspects' car stopped at the Mulholland Drive exit off the 405 Freeway.
The car traveled at speeds up to 90 mph, and may have also been involved in a collision with a gray van along the way.
The names of the suspects were being withheld, pending booking.
