Police were pursuing this black BMW in Venice, California, on Saturday when things took a carnival turn.
The suspect emerged through the car’s sky roof, wearing what has been described as a joker mask. He faced the cops giving chase and appeared to beckon them onward.
The BMW eventually came to a dead-end, but the clown hadn’t finished his act.
The suspect ran past beach-goers and tennis players, finally reaching the sand. He mingled with sunbathers. Eventually, near the water, he was surrounded by police with stun-guns pointed.
The man surrendered but not before drawing an audience with mobile phones trained on the finale. CBS News reported LAPD has charged the suspect with failure to yield.
