SAN FRANCISCO — A Chihuahua led California Highway Patrol officers on a “high-speed pursuit” on Sunday that was captured on video.

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

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