LOS ANGELES (AP) - The California Highway Patrol says a drunken driving suspect was arrested after leading Los Angeles police and CHP officers on a slow-speed chase that covered about 30 miles over two highways and several surface streets.

CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos says LAPD officers began the pursuit shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday on northbound Interstate 405 in the Van Nuys area.

The driver eventually exited the highway and then moved to the northbound Interstate 5. The CHP took over when the suspect exited and got back on the southbound I-5 near Santa Clarita. Villalobos tells City News Service the man drove no faster than about 45 mph.

He was eventually taken into custody without incident near Arleta around 10:40 p.m. and booked on suspicion of evading officers and other crimes.

His name was not released.
