HALLANDALE BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have taken one person into custody after leading officers in a pursuit across Golden Beach and Hallandale Beach.

The chaotic chain of events apparently began when a Golden Beach Police officer began pursuing a driver in a white Mercedes-Benz that was reported stolen, Tuesday afternoon.

At one point, the driver reached the area of Hallandale Beach Boulevard and Three Islands Boulevard in Hallandale Beach.

The pursuit ended shortly after, when the subject crashed in a parking lot along the 1400 block of East Hallandale Beach Boulevard and took off running.

Police said a passenger in the Mercedes remained at the scene.

7SkyForce hovered above officers as they set up a perimeter in the area.

Just after 5 p.m., officers were able to apprehend the driver after they spotted him near Northeast Fourth Court and Federal Highway.

It remains unclear what charges the driver will face.
