Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic detectives are seeking the public’s help to identify a felony evading driver.
On May 29, 2022, around 9:25 p.m., the driver of a vehicle failed to yield to officers when they attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the driver for moving violations in the area of Florence Avenue and Vermont Avenue. The driver conducted evasive maneuvers in order to elude the officers. The driver drove in an unsafe speed, drove on the opposite side of the road, turned off the vehicle’s headlights, and almost collided with other vehicles as he eluded the officers. A pursuit was not initiated.
The driver is described as a male Black, standing 6 feet tall to 6 feet and 2 inches, and weighing about 270 to 300 pounds. He appeared to be 25 to 30 years old and had long black dreadlocked hair.
The vehicle is described as a 2018-2021 charcoal gray 4-door Dodge Charger. It had aftermarket black rims, a hood scoop, an “SRT” emblem on the grill, and a white decal letter “A” on the bottom corner of the windshield. A license plate was not obtained due to the rear plate being covered over with a towel.
