Man dressed as a clown leads police on a chase, stops to help bury someone in the sand on Venice Beach before getting arrested


A bizarre police chase happened in southern California Saturday afternoon.

It started around 3 p.m. Officers were following a black BMW. Things took a turn when witnesses say the driver stood up and sat on the roof of the car. He was wearing a Halloween mask.

The chase ended on Venice Boulevard, but the suspect wasn’t finished. He ran from the scene and onto the beach nearby.

A crowd gathered, and people started filming with their cellphones. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Police have not identified the driver or the passenger.
