Car chase ends in Glendale

NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- A 27-year-old West Hills woman was arrested

Tuesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon -- her car -- after

leading police on a street chase that began in Van Nuys, weaved through


Burbank and ended in Glendale.

Devi Jordan was being held at Glendale City Jail on $35,000 bail. She

is set be arraigned Thursday in Glendale.

No one was hurt in the chase, LAPD Officer Jose L. Rodriguez said.


“She violated a lot of laws,” he said, adding that Jordan ran several

red lights.

The chase began about 10:30 a.m. in Van Nuys after Jordan, who was

driving alone in a 1988 Honda Civic, did not stop for officers, Glendale

Police Sgt. Tom Kuh said.

At 10:36 a.m., with LAPD units in pursuit and police and television

helicopters overhead, Jordan drove into Burbank, Burbank Police Sgt.

Richard Madrid said. The car reached speeds of up to 55 to 60 mph on


surface streets, Madrid said.

She drove into Glendale but came back into Burbank, even driving

around Burbank High School. Jordan eventually drove north on Third Street

to Delaware Road and onto Glenoaks Boulevard, where she erratically drove

east, entering Glendale at 10:49 a.m., Madrid said.

LAPD lost Jordan on San Fernando Road, but Glendale Police spotted her

at Western Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard, Glendale Police Sgt. Kirk

Palmer said. They followed her through traffic lights to Misty Isle


Drive, where she drove into a cul-de-sac.

“The officers boxed her in, and she rammed two police cars,” Palmer

said, adding officers had to smash the driver’s side window and cut her

out of her seat belt.
