A roughly hour-long car chase that winded through the Crescenta Valley foothills during rush hour Thursday ended after the fleeing driver surrendered to deputies. The chase ended in a Tujunga neighborhood at about 8:45 a.m. when officers used the so-called "pit maneuver" to bump the robbery suspect's bumper and spin his car around. The move worked, until the suspect threw his car in reverse and drove backward down the street with squad cars pursuing in front, the Los Angeles Times reported . The suspect eventually exited his car with his hands above his head after his car was pinned in. Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies had pursued the man in a white compact car for about an hour as he blew through intersections, school zones and narrow neighborhood streets.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE ? The trial for Michel Heckman ? a Crescenta Valley High School math teacher charged with battery and two counts of misdemeanor hit-and-run ? was continued until Monday to give attorneys on both sides more time to prepare. The charges stem from a Feb. 8 incident near downtown in which police allege Heckman caused, or was involved in, multiple car accidents during a civilian car chase. He is also accused of punching the 51-year-old driver of a van he collided with after reportedly leaving Damon's Glendale Steakhouse and of driving under the influence of alcohol.
