A 31-year-old Van Nuys man who led police on slow-speed pursuit into Glendale was released Wednesday after posting bond, officials said.
The man, Ambartsum Sarkisyan, was arrested on suspicion of assault with deadly weapon after he allegedly got in a dispute with Los Angeles Police Department officers at the scene of a crash and tried to strike an officer with the tow truck before fleeing, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Police chased Sarkisyan for 2 1/2 hours until he reached Glendale.
He eventually stopped mid-block on Mountain Street, just east of Brand Boulevard, and exited the tow truck. Glendale police immediately arrested him and later turned him over to LAPD officers.
