“It was a multi-area pursuit that traversed several CHP areas,” said Sergeant Pack with California Highway Patrol.

The chase began at 8:36 a.m. when law enforcement were notified that someone was driving suspiciously.

The chase eventually ended in Bakersfield where officials arrested a 54-year-old man around 10:30 p.m.
