A crazy car chase this morning prompted me to make this video... I originally saw the video on Ryan Seacrest .com (gotta love Twitter), where he posted the video, but I couldn't embed the video on my blog (shameless plug: http://www.plasterazzi.com ) So I decided to 'grab' the video to share with you. But the original video has no sound, so I added 'Yakety Sax' aka The Benny Hill Theme... The rest, as they say, is history... Please note I do not own the footage, nor the music... A SlightlyIllegal.com Film.

Here is the original article from KTLA:
LONG BEACH -- A 47-year-old Signal Hill woman was arrested after leading police on a bizarre high-speed chase across several local freeways this morning (Friday April 10, 2009). The incident began about 6:05 a.m. when officers went to Orange Avenue and Bixby Road in Long Beach in response to a report of a "woman screaming," said Long Beach police Officer Jackie Bezart. It's believed the woman was involved in some kind of domestic dispute.
She allegedly tried to run over arriving officers with her gray Scion crossover and then sped off.The chase went onto the southbound San Diego (405) Freeway and then onto the eastbound Garden Grove (22) Freeway, the Costa Mesa (55) Freeway, SR 91 and onto SR 241 tollway in Rancho Santa Margarita. At times the pursuit reached speeds of 100 miles per hour. CHP officers eventually picked up the chase.
The intensity increased when the woman began driving in circles along the 241, crossing the grassy median and traveling in the wrong direction. At one point, the woman got out of the vehicle and began shouting expletives at police while the Scion slowly rolled away. She got back inside and drove off again. Police used a PIT maneuver, causing the woman's vehicle to spin out, but she continued on.
The chase ended near Oso Parkway shortly before 7 a.m. when several patrol vehicles pinned in the vehicle and officers pulled her out. The unidentified woman was taken into custody. She was still shouting profanities at officers as she sat inside the patrol car.
