The chase began shortly after 1 p.m. in the San Gabriel Valley area. CHP officers said they tried to pull over an SUV for a carpool lane violation and the vehicle continued driving.
Officers followed the SUV at 60-70 mph on the westbound 134 through Glendale and on the 101 into the San Fernando Valley.
They passed the 405 Freeway and a CHP SUV pulled in front of the vehicle and slowed down. The driver stopped in lanes as other CHP vehicles surrounded him.
Officers approached the vehicle and the driver was cooperative, stepping out and being taken into custody without further incident.
CHP officers said the elderly driver appeared to be disoriented.
Traffic was briefly backed up on the westbound 101 Freeway, but officers were able to clear the scene in less than 15 minutes.
