Video shows an unusual chase in the Bay Area Sunday morning. A Chihuahua led California Highway Patrol officers on a pursuit across the Bay Bridge.

At one point, the dog was running against traffic.

He was eventually captured and taken to the animal control office where they're working to reunite him with his owner. 

They've named the little guy "Ponch" after the Erik Estrada character on the 1970s TV show "CHiPs," about California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers.
