The parade of police cars that followed proceeded behind the suspect’s vehicle as he now made a right turn onto Palm and pulled into the police car entrance of the Burbank Police Department.

Officers preformed a felony stop and ordered the driver from the car with the assistance of their K-9 unit and several officers.

Burbank Police arrested  Anthony Jones, 35, for allegedly driving under the influence, and several traffic violations. There were no officer or pedestrian injuries during the slow moving pursuit.
