Stolen car suspect perched on Los Angeles harbor crane

A man who led authorities on a chase in a stolen car is perched on the arm of a loading crane at the Port of Los Angeles.

Police say an SUV reported stolen from a dealership in San Bernardino was spotted in Los Angeles shortly after 3 p.m.

During an hourslong chase, the car swerved at high speed through freeway traffic in L.A. and Long Beach, sometimes crossing into oncoming lanes.

The car drove into a terminal, circling back and forth under giant loading cranes and next to a docked ship before the driver fled and climbed stairs to the top of the crane.

He broke into the crane cab, came out, walked to the end of the crane over water, then returned and is sitting on a crane arm.
