SAN FRANCISCO (April 4, 2016) – A Chihuahua led San Francisco California Highway Patrol officers on a “high-speed pursuit” on Sunday that was captured on video.

A CHP motorcycle officer can be seen in video posted to the department’s Twitter account around 7:40 a.m. capturing the chase on the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge.

The black Chihuahua was initially spotted on the bridge’s north side, but it ran away when a motorcycle officer attempted to grab it, initiating the pursuit, according to local TV station KNTV.

The dog was eventually nabbed, according to the CHP, which posted in a tongue-in-cheek tweet that included a dog emoji and said the “suspect” was later “taken into custody.”

San Francisco County Animal Care and Control later picked up the Chihuahua and asked that its owner contact officials at 415-554-6364.
