UPDATE: Who knew?! We couldn't take our eyes off of this dramatic car chase yesterday that ended with a civilian's help. Well, that man turned out to be Operation Repo star Lou Pizarro. And he used his famous red truck to do it! Pizarro said afterward, "It was just instinct just to block the guy off and slow him down a little bit. That's all I could do."
You can't escape the long arm of the law… even with a longboard, bro!

A suspect who allegedly stole a BMW sedan had police on his tail in a chase that happened in Van Nuys, California on Monday.
However, unfortunately for the suspect, who at time reached speeds of up to 90 mph in the stolen vehicle, he crashed into the back of another car before trying his luck on foot!
Although he attempted to flee with the help of a skateboard, his mad skills on the board we're no match for one unexpected foe.
In an unfolding of events that definitely should be recreated in a car commercial, an average joe in a pickup not only tried to block the suspect on the road, he ended up cornering the perp with his car.
The driver of the truck (and now living legend of epic proportions), Lou Pizarro, had this to say about his heroics:
"It was just instinct to block the guy off, slow him down a little bit."
This just goes to show that while some may attempt to steal BMWs, but you can never go wrong with a dependable pickup truck.
Ch-ch-check out the thrilling video (above)!!!
