WOAH. There’s an absolutely batshit crazy high speed car chase going on in Los Angeles right now. I hate to draw the comparison to Grand Theft Auto V, but since it’s L.A. it sort of fits: The guy has been driving like a mad man while trying to flee the cops in hot pursuit. He even committed an armed car-jacking, all while news helicopters captured the dramatic scene overhead. It looks like he has a gun in this video.

As of this writing, he’s racing down the 710 Freeway. GTA is obviously a video game and this is real life, so let’s hope this scum gets slapped in cuffs and doesn’t hurt anyone along the way.

UPDATE: THEY GOT HIM! He got out of the car and tried to jack a Lexus SUV, then the cops fired some shots and he went down. WOAH THAT WAS INTENSE. Watch the video:

Watch it live over on CBS Los Angeles.
