LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Authorities have arrested two burglary suspects who led them on a long, bizarre chase in a top-down convertible through rainy Southern California that ended with the men stopping to exchange high-fives with onlookers and take selfies before being handcuffed.
   The hour-long escapade Thursday afternoon stretched from Cerritos onto freeways and through Hollywood and other parts of Los Angeles before winding up in a South LA neighborhood.
   During the chase, the driver of the blue Mustang did "donuts" on the street while the passenger waved to nearby motorists and occasionally stood up as the car cruised through jammed traffic.
   At the end, the driver sat on the car's hood, and both men exchanged hugs and chatted with more than a dozen onlookers for several minutes before surrendering to arriving sheriff's deputies.
