San Diego police officers, trailing a driver on a high-speed chase that involved several major highways in San Diego County, arrested the man in Chula Vista.
At least two dozen police cruisers followed the driver of a silver Pontiac on northbound I-5.
Just before 2 p.m., the driver stopped the car in the number 2 lane just south of Main Street, opened the driver side door and exited with his hands up.
An officer cuffed the suspect and led him to a patrol car.
All traffic in the northbound lanes was stopped while officers searched the suspect's car.
The chase began after a robbery call at a McDonald's according to a police spokesperson.
