    At 4:28 p.m., Long Beach P.D. rolled out a spike strip, but the strip did not seem to completely unfurl, so its effectiveness was not immediately know.

    In an attempt to avoid traffic, the driver proceeded to drive on the wrong side of the street multiple times.

    At 4:34 p.m., the suspect rammed into a police car after heading down into narrow alleyways. The man was taken into custody shortly after the crash with the police car.
