Patrol cars from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Division started pursuing the stolen car shortly after 11:30 p.m. around Western Avenue and 8th Street in the Koreatown area, media reports said.
Officers were told by the Tesla Model S owner that the car’s battery was at only 1 percent when they were pursuing the vehicle in the Hollywood area, Key News Network reported.
