FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida. – A police chase and bailout ended with a minor detained in Fort Lauderdale on Monday.

Authorities say a man stole a BMW and took off officers, leading to that person ending up in the back of a police cruiser.

The suspect eventually ended up in a neighborhood along northeast 5th Avenue and 13th Street.

Resident Mark Hill heard the commotion and ran outside his apartment.

“I looked outside and there were cops everywhere, then I walked out a bit further and there it is, this beautiful car right there,” Hill said of the stolen BMW.

Police did not say where exactly the BMW was stolen, or from whom.
