    A man was arrested Wednesday after he led California Highway Patrol on a high-speed pursuit through freeways and surface streets in the Long Beach area.

    CHP initiated the chase at 10:46 p.m. after the driver refused to yield for not having license plates. The erratic driver zipped through multiple freeways by lane-splitting through vehicles at speeds of over 130 mph.

    The driver ditched his bike in a residential area in Long Beach then walked to a corner, where he took out his cell-phone and acted as if he was speaking to someone.

    The unusual pursuit ended just before 11 p.m. after CHP surrounded the driver and arrested him.
