A possible DUI suspect engaged police in southern California in an hours-long chase and standoff Sunday.

The driver refused to exit his car after a police pursuit that followed a small traffic crash in Orange County.

When the driver eventually stopped but refused to exit his vehicle, police pinned his truck with larger vehicles.

That’s when officers appeared to fire rounds of pepper spray balls into the cab of his truck.

It eventually took a K-9 unit, several officers, and a taser to take the suspect into custody.
