A high-speed pursuit that started in Los Angeles ended with a man getting arrested in Kern County on Tuesday.
The California Highway Patrol said that at 4:35 a.m., the L.A. center received a call from the Los Angeles Police Department that they were in pursuit of a person suspected to be driving under the influence.
The pursuit went north on I-5 into Kern County until the driver stopped on the freeway just south of Highway 43 at 5:51 a.m., after several Kern County-area CHP units responded to the pursuit.
The CHP said the driver tried to get away on foot but didn't get far after a K-9 with the Kern County Sheriff's Office was deployed to stop him. The suspect, 32-year-old Chatsworth resident Anthony Robert Flores, was then arrested and taken to Kern Medical Center for treatment of a K-9 bite.
After he was treated, Flores was booked into the Kern County Jail on suspicion of driving under the influence, evading and resisting arrest, driving on a suspended license and various drug charges.
