The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office on Tuesday filed four felony charges against the man who led Burbank police and California Highway Patrol officers on a one-hour pursuit on multiple freeways through the San Fernando Valley Friday night.
Vardan Aslanyan, 29, was charged with felony evading, felony drunk driving, felony hit-and-run, possession of heroine and driving with a suspended license, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.
For the Record: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that Aslanyan faced three felony charges. He faces four.
About an hour after the pursuit began, Aslanyan was arrested by Burbank police in Hollywood, where he crashed into a vehicle, causing it to flip onto its roof and after side-swiping another, Ryburn said.
