Police chase ends with suspects kissing passionately in LA

A Bonnie and Clyde couple who led police on a chase through Los Angeles in a stolen U-Haul truck surprised cops when they kissed passionately moments before they were arrested. 

The female driver and her male passenger led police through the streets before finally stopping in the neighborhood of Montebello Wednesday afternoon. 

They blew a tire out and crashed into another pick-up truck during the pursuit.

According to the LA Times, the pursuit began around 10.30am when Bell Gardens police pulled the vehicle over but realized it was stolen when the vehicle fled after the stop.

Bell Gardens police had begun the pursuit before the California Highway Patrol (CHP) took over.

CHP pursued the duo through several cities in Southeast Los Angeles, according to KTLA which was following along in its news chopper.

The pair led the chase through highways and local streets for nearly two hours before police were able to surround the vehicle.
