Guy gets into whippit standoff with LAPD after slow-speed chase


Woo hoo this is a good one, you guys. Cops tried to stop a man driving in California after they suspected him of driving under the influence. The guy led L.A.P.D. officers on a slow-speed chase for 10 minutes. Then—with a spike strip tangled underneath his car—the man proceeded to fill up balloons in his vehicle and inhale the contents repeatedly as police surrounded him. Eventually, officers swarmed the car and placed the man under arrest, but not before "whippit standoff" became a thing that exists. Happy Friday, everyone. [NBCLA]
