Earlier today, the Los Angeles police department saw an incredibly unusual police chases. But, as strange as the chase itself was, it was the ending that was the icing on the incredibly dangerous and all too unusual high speed pursuit.

Two men in a convertible blue mustang were being pursued by police after they had become suspects in a burglary. Over the course of a few hours, the men managed to drive down the busy streets of LA, top down, while the 5–0 chased them both on the ground and in the air.

Besides almost crashing into a TMZ tour bus and doing a few burnouts on Hollywood Boulevard, the pair topped off the string of dangerous events with, wait for it, a selfie session with fellow friends in the streets.

Parked alongside the curb in a more residential area of LA, the men started conversing and interacting with bystanders as though they were celebrities of sorts. A few minutes after first slowing down on the side street, the pair can be seen taking photos with other individuals who wanted to make sure to capture a selfie with the suspects.

It took a while, but police eventually showed up on the scene while the two suspects, surprisingly, surrendered without any hesitation.

Not only did the pair endanger the lives of many, there isn’t any consolation in taking selfies with fans. Instagram likes won’t drop the felony counts.
