SAN FRANCISCO – Video of a Chihuahua leading San Francisco California Highway Patrol officers on a “high-speed pursuit” was captured Sunday morning, authorities said.

A CHP motorcycle officer can be seen in the video chasing the black Chihuahua across the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge, KTLA reported.

The small dog 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.”

Video of the pursuit was posted to the department’s Twitter account around 7:40 a.m.

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