ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. -- It's a chase across the country, but an Orange County, Calif. police pursuit lit up social media on Sunday afternoon.

Aerial footage from KNBC's NewsChopper 4 showed the suspect weaving in and out of traffic for hours while heading into residential neighborhoods and running red lights.

The pursuit began at 4:45 PST but lasted through the afternoon with multiple cautious attempts by police to stop the vehicle. Police initially reported that the vehicle, a red Chrysler 300, might have been stolen but later confirmed that the suspect was wanted for a traffic violation.

The chase finally ended around 7 p.m. PST in the Garden Grove area.
