A high-speed car chase went down in L.A. on Sunday night, and a guy was watching it on TV and filming the coverage for YouTube . . . when the car chase went right past his house.

You can check out the video online.  In case you're wondering, the driver was some kid who apparently stole the car.  The cops eventually managed to stop him with a spike strip.

WARNING** THIS DUDE SAYS THE "S" WORD.
