A man accused of speeding at more than 100 mph through the Newhall Pass was arrested Wednesday after a subsequent foot chase, during which the suspect hurled a rock at an LAPD officer.

A Los Angeles Police officer traveling through the Newhall Pass on the southbound side of Interstate 5 said Lamar Glenn, 21, of Altadena, passed his police car at more than 100 mph.

The LAPD officer chased the suspect, whom they identified as Glenn, along the southbound side of Interstate 5, south of the Highway 14 junction. The suspect lost control of his car and slammed into a concrete wall. Three passengers riding in the suspect's car suffered injuries in the crash, according to a California Highway Patrol news release.

Glenn fled the scene on foot and the officer pursued with help from CHP officers, who also gave chase on foot. Glenn hopped several fences as he continued to evade law enforcement, according to a CHP news release. He entered the Sunshine Canyon Landfill where the LAPD officer, still in pursuit, flashed his badge and his weapon at Glenn, according to a CHP statement.

Glenn responded by hurling a rock at the LAPD officer, according to a police report. The officer dodged the rock but suffered cuts and scrapes as a result of his maneuvers, according to a CHP statement.

Glenn was finally captured and subdued by CHP and LAPD officers. He was charged with felony hit-and-run and felony assault. Glenn is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail pending a court date.
