Two men were taken into custody after leading sheriff’s deputies on a chase through residential streets in Palmdale.
Deputies responded to 27th Street East and E. Avenue R-12 at approximately 11:35 p.m. Nov. 17 regarding a possible reckless driving suspect under the influence, said Lt. Jeffrey Rhea of the LA County Sheriffs’ Department’s Palmdale Station.
When deputies approached the suspect’s vehicle, which Rhea described as a white Mazda, the suspects drove away and led deputies on a slow-speed pursuit through residential streets of east Palmdale.
During the pursuit, deputies saw one of the suspects throw an object out of the car, Rhea said. Near Avenue R and 55th Street East deputies caught up with the suspects and arrested them.
They also recovered a firearm they believe belonged to the suspects.
