A high-speed police chase in Los Angeles on Thursday night (11May17) ended in a screening of Tom Hanks and Emma Watson’s new movie, The Circle.
Cops chased alleged postal thief Christopher Cook through Hacienda Heights and into the South Gate area, where the crook jumped out of his stolen car and dashed into a local cinema in an effort to avoid arrest and mingle with the crowds.
But he picked the wrong film.
Only three other people were watching the new release, allowing Edwards Cinema staff to get them to safety before police arrived.
Cook, 27, was quickly arrested on suspicion of theft, evading arrest and possession of a stolen vehicle.
