Man dressed like ‘Joker’ leads police on chase


ORANGE COUNTY (KRON/CNN Newsource) — Monday’s police chase on Venice Beach could’ve been right out of a comic book.

He was wearing a green wig and a clown mask.

Police said the man was driving recklessly around Orange County.

He was also seen riding on the sunroof of a car while a passenger was steering.

The chase ended on Venice Beach with the man strolling along the beach.

Police threatened to tase him if he didn’t cooperate.

He eventually surrendered, taking off his shirt and getting on his knees.

He was arrested without incident and there was an audience for the whole thing.
