Southern California

It is truly unclear what exactly was going through a car chase suspect’s mind when police finally caught up with him and in response he began breakdancing.

It all went down in San Fernando Valley when CHP officers were involved in a slow speed car chase—yes, you read that correctly—from Calabasas through southern California to catch an alleged reckless driver who failed to stop when asked to do so by authority, per ABC 7 Chicago on Wednesday.

All the excitement was captured on video and shared on YouTube. Check it out. (RELATED: Driver Refuses To Pull Over For Cops, Says Car Chase Was On His ‘Bucket List’)

WATCH:

During the pursuit, which never reached faster than 60 mph, the suspect lead cops from the 101 freeway to the 118 East. At one point, he slowed his car down to 20 mph. While he reportedly never made any evasive maneuvers, he refused to pull over as well.

The police chase finally came to an end after officers were able to spin out his car using a PIT maneuver (Pursuit Intervention Technique).

Once his car was stopped, the man exited his vehicle and then started to show off his rather impressive 1980s breakdancing moves as police pointed guns at him. (RELATED: Man Films High-Speed Car Chase Then The Car Hit Him)

Clearly, from the overhead video taken from the chopper ahead, the suspect seemed completely unfazed by the police or the weapons pointed at him as he completed his dance routine.

Once the show was finally over, authorities were able to take him into custody without further incident.

Definitely one for the books!

A woman who has been caught up in the major college admissions scandal reportedly co-hosted a fundraising event for Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Jane Buckingham, who has been accused of paying $50,000 to get her son into the University of Southern California, reportedly co-hosted a party for Gillibrand at home in Beverly Hills on March 9, according to Page Six. The event was held to help fund Gillibrand’s exploratory 2020 presidential run.

This all comes as Buckingham is under fire for the college admissions scheme, including multiple celebrities.

Gillibrand’s office did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation for comment about the event.

A California horse-racing track announced Thursday a ban on drugs and whips on race days after the 22nd horse died at the track since late December 2018.

“Today, I’m announcing The Stronach Group will take the unprecedented step of declaring a zero tolerance for race day medication at Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Fields,” the Stronach Group, which owns Santa Anita Park, said in a Thursday statement. “What has happened at Santa Anita over the last few weeks is beyond heartbreaking. It is unacceptable — unacceptable to the public and, as people who deeply love horses.”

Joint injections, shockwave therapy and anabolic steroids are among items facing more restrictions. Whips are only permitted to “be used as a corrective safety measure,” according to the statement.

The announcement comes after a horse, Princess Lili B, broke both legs during training and was euthanized, according to The New York Times.

Horse racing officials indefinitely shut down the Los Angeles race track March 5 after 21 horses died since the winter season began Dec. 26, 2018. Officials reopened the track Wednesday, TheNYT reported.

Investigators are trying to discover the cause of the deaths, so far to no avail. In the meantime, the park is implementing the bans in an attempt to make the track safer. No other track has ever banned whips and drugs on racing day, according to the Stronach Group’s statement.

The park’s owner said the winter’s unusually cold and wet weather could be contributing to the horse fatalities.

“We think that [rain] could definitely contribute even though our experts are telling us not,” Stronach Group COO Tim Ritvo told The Associated Press at the time of the March 5 closure. “The tracks out here are built not for weather like that.”

Experts have not been able to find any major irregularities at the park, The Washington Post reported.

The California Horse Racing Board will holding a meeting on March 21 to assess the situation.

“First and foremost, we must do right by the horse. When we do right by the horse, everything – everything – will follow,” the Stronach Group’s statement reads.

PETA called in a March 2 statement for an investigation to determine if horses were being forced to train through injuries following the 20th horse death. (RELATED: Animal Rights Groups Sue Over Trump’s Plan To Keep Overpopulated Wild Horses From Getting Pregnant)

“[The industry has yet to do everything that can be done to prevent them. That changes today,” the group’s statement concludes.
