Officials were in pursuit of the vehicle earlier, but lost it on the freeway. Torrance police officials later picked it up, but called off the pursuit and the SUV was then chased by Long Beach police, Im said.
After driving erratically through lanes at the port, the man got out of the SUV and began climbing a crane at the West Basin Container Terminal, sometimes backwards. The man then broke a window and climbed into a hole in the crane then continued walking around, in an effort to avoid police.
At times the man was sat on the crane and appeared to stretch, do crunches and handstands, aerial video from Sky 5 showed. He eventually took off his shoes, his shirt and was dangling his feet over the ledge of the crane. Police, meanwhile, surrounded the area in an effort to take him into custody.
