LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — California Highway Patrol officers chased down six dogs that jumped from a Mercedes into highway lanes following a car chase.

CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos says officers pulled up behind the Mercedes, which was parked on the shoulder of State Route 91 in Orange County Monday night.

The female driver took off, leading officers on a pursuit that ended when a CHP vehicle knocked the Mercedes sideways on Interstate 710 in Long Beach.

As the woman was taken into custody her six dogs, large and small, jumped out of the car and ran into lanes.

Traffic was stopped as officers rounded up the animals.

It wasn't immediately clear what charges the woman might face.
