The suspect raced west on the 118 Freeway, exited in Simi Valley, and as he attempted to get back on the 118, CHP officers performed a successful PIT-maneuver, knocking the man's vehicle off the road.

The man can then be seen getting out of the vehicle, putting his hands and walking backwards to the officers. After he got down on his knees, a CHP officer moved in to handcuff him when he suddenly began struggling with the two officers.

A struggle ensued before getting the suspect to the ground. They managed to get the suspect handcuffed and in custody after a third officer arrived at the scene to help.

Authorities later reported that neither of the CHP officers were injured, but that the suspect was transported to a nearby hospital as a precaution.
