Suspect in Custody After Standoff in Stolen LADWP Vehicle

After an hours-long pursuit and standoff in Atwater Village, a guy driving a stolen Los Angeles Department of Water and Power SUV was apprehended.

The driver there resisted getting out of the car.

The theft of the SUV’s specifics was not immediately known.
