The 8-Hour Stand-Off Is The New High Speed Car Chase

Woodland Hills, CA

Used to be you could count on some asshat in a stolen El Camino running meth from Lancaster to make L.A. traffic his bitch. Today they don't even need to leave the house.

The 101 freeway was shut down between Topanga and DeSoto for 8 hours Saturday morning after police were called in on a domestic dispute at a nearby residence.

I wonder sometimes if SWAT gets brought in less to end the standoff and more to keep pissed off drivers from heading over to beat the shit out of the suspect. Pull this shit on a weekday and you'll see just how murderous a 9-5er can get.

i love that word, "asshat." I re-wrote a whole scene 2 books ago just so i could use it in a nearly-relevant way. AND, an old El Camino - maybe yellow - ?? is my dream car.
