Police officers in Pasadena arrested an adult and a juvenile, following a police chase that ended in La Canada. Officers attempted to stop a vehicle after the driver committed a moving violation. The driver fled the area, and later abandoned the vehicle, attempting to flee on foot. Both suspects possessed methamphetamine at the time of their arrest. Prosecutors charged the adult with drug possession, felony evading and child endangerment. They took the juvenile suspect, a Los Angeles resident, to a Los Angeles County juvenile facility.
