A Los Angeles family's Memorial Day barbecue had a dramatic and dangerous interruption when a high-speed police chase rolled into the driveway.

Police say they responded to a reported burglary at a home and saw a man get into a red Honda and flee the scene.

Officers gave chase to the suspect, who circled surrounding neighborhoods, jumping the sidewalk and sideswiping parked cars.

A half-hour into the intense pursuit, the suspect pulled into the driveway of a duplex where a Memorial Day cookout was taking place.

Homeowner Chanel Washington and her family members immediately made a break for it. All managed to get inside the house and lock the door.

The suspect emerged from the vehicle with his hands up and was taken into custody mere feet from the barbecue grill.
