The car, a four-door sedan, could be seen weaving in and out of traffic lanes as it sped along the southbound lanes of the 5 Freeway.

Traveling at speeds of up to 90 mph, the driver then merged on the southbound 110 Freeway near downtown Los Angeles, before exiting onto surface streets in the Florence area, aerial video of the pursuit showed.

After driving through several neighborhoods, the driver got back on the 110 Freeway, this time heading in the northbound direction.

In the Echo Park area, the driver merged onto the northbound 5 Freeway, video showed.

The car then transitioned onto the westbound 134 heading into the Toluca Lake area.

The driver exited the freeway at Coldwater Canyon Avenue and stopped long enough to let a passenger get out of the vehicle, aerial video showed.

The car then continued up into the Hollywood Hills, where Sky5 and other news helicopters were unable to follow because of the low cloud ceiling.

Authorities said the driver finally stopped the car in the Beverly Crest area and fled on foot and was eventually arrested.
