LOS ANGELES – Police arrested a man Thursday who allegedly threatened officers inside a South Los Angeles police station before leading them on a nearly half-hour televised chase.

The unidentified suspect was taken into custody by about a dozen LAPD officers around 2:15 p.m. after a chase that began about 1:50 p.m. at the Southwest Area police station in the 1500 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, department spokeswoman Norma Eisenman said.

Police said the man walked into the station and said he wanted to kill police officers before running out and getting into his car, Eisenman said. During the pursuit, the suspect ran through stop signs and red lights. He also drove on a sidewalk and into lanes with oncoming traffic. Two officers were injured in an accident during the chase.

Officers hemmed him in at 37th Street and Normandie Avenue. News footage showed officers breaking the windows of the suspect’s vehicle and using a Taser before wrestling him out and onto the ground.

    I agree. I think he was trying to be killed by a cop. Not too bright to walk in a station and mention murder. Not even on a side bar conversation. LOL.

    @irishCop1961: Any cop who dispense his own justice has no business being a cop.
