The vehicle made its way to the San Gabriel Valley after passing through El Monte. The driver was seen exceeding 100 miles per hour at times of the northbound 605 Freeway.


At one point, the driver threw an unidentified object out of the driver's side window. Police later said the object was recovered but did specify what the item was.

The suspect was seen weaving across all five lanes of the 210 Freeway, often driving on the right shoulder. The driver lost control of the vehicle while attempting to cross lanes, clipping the back of a pickup truck, but the driver was able to regain control and continued down the freeway.

The driver exited the freeway in the West Covina area near Baldwin Park.

After briefly leading the CHP through surface streets, the driver stopped and surrendered to officers near the intersection of Hornbrook Avenue and Rockenbach Street in Baldwin Park. DeAngelo was taken into custody without further incident.

Additional details were not immediately available.
