A male suspect brazenly stole and recklessly operated a forklift in a wild ride through the heart of downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday evening, causing significant damage to multiple buildings. The incident ended when the suspect crashed the forklift into an Apple Store, where he subsequently barricaded himself.
Footage of the pursuit shows law enforcement authorities desperately trying to contain the situation as the suspect drove the heavy machinery with abandon, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake.
The suspect was later taken into custody after a standoff in the Apple Store. No injuries have been reported at this time, but the full extent of the property damage is still being assessed. The investigation into this unusual incident continues.
