Pursuit suspect taken into custody after standoff

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man who led CHP officers on a chase for more than an hour through Southern California was arrested Sunday morning. 

Officials say the chase began on SR-91 in Long Beach earlier in the morning after the suspect made threats against an LA County Fire Battalion Chief. 

The chase headed south and eventually ended on Camino Del Rey in Bonsall. However, the man refused to get out of the vehicle. Police used bean-bags and police K-9s to pull him out of the vehicle. He was later taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation. 

The suspect's name has not been released.
