FORT TEJON, Calif. (KGET) — A motorcyclist led California Highway Patrol officers on a lengthy, high-speed chase Thursday that began in the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 in the Fort Tejon area then headed south all the way to the 210 freeway.

The motorcyclist, whose name was not included in a CHP Facebook post, eventually stopped in the area of the 210 and 118 freeways and was taken into custody, officers said. The motorcycle was reported stolen.
