The world’s worst dog owner was taken into custody after she drove her two dogs into the ocean and abandoned them to die following an LA car chase.

LA car chase ends at the beach

Officers from the California Highway Patrol were chasing a silver-colored BMW connected to a speeding incident that had occurred on a late Saturday night in Los Angeles.

The high-speed chase went through West Los Angeles at around 85 miles per hour, and continued through a beach-side neighborhood at speeds between 35 and 65 miles per hour.

Eventually, the 39-year-old female suspect reached Venice Beach, where she navigated the vehicle through a parking area, then inexplicably drove onto the sand and into the Pacific Ocean.

She continued her attempt to evade the law by swimming further into the ocean, before ultimately being pulled out by the Marina Sheriff Department and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Woman in LA car chase leaves dogs to drown

According to the police report, her two Boston terriers were in the car when she drove into the water and left them to drown.

Luckily, both pooches were rescued by first responders and are now safely in the custody of animal control. The car was also pulled out of the water later that day.

The woman was arrested early Sunday morning after being fished out of the water, and was transported to a local hospital. She faces charges of speeding and evading arrest.

Violent criminal shot after dragging officer while fleeing

Meanwhile, another near car chase ended in a suspect being shot while an officer was hanging out of the open door of his getaway vehicle.

At around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Deputy Christopher Howell of the Pasco County Sheriff’s initiated contact with 40-year-old Paul Smith at convenience store outside of Tampa, Florida.

Smith, known for having a history of violent crime, was allegedly connected to a case involving battery by strangulation.

Bodycam footage from the police showed a visibly confused Smith being requested to exit his vehicle by the deputy.

Instead of complying, started the car and attempted to flee, while the deputy repeatedly barked at him to get out of the vehicle.

Howell eventually tried to bodily remove the suspect from his car, but Smith drove away while he was handing out of the open door.

The deputy employed a stun gun multiple times against the suspect, targeting the back and neck, but Smith remained undeterred from his escape.

Howell repeatedly warned Smith that he would shoot him if he didn’t pull over, but ex-con refused to listen and was shot in the back for his efforts.

Following the incident, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office reported that Howell gained control of the vehicle and pulled over.

According to their statement, he tried to save Smith’s life with first aid, but was unsuccessful and the suspect died.

Deputy being investigated for shooting suspect

The Sheriff’s Office’s spokesman said that Howell’s reaction was necessary, though the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will ultimately decide of the shooting was justified.

Smith was reportedly a convicted criminal who had done time behind bars for his actions, which were startlingly similar to the way he died.

In 2019, Smith was found guilty of fleeing law enforcement in a vehicle, assaulting a law enforcement officer, and engaging in hit-and-run, which resulted in three-year stint in state prison.
