A man was arrested in San Francisco this morning after leading police and California Highway Patrol officers on a low-speed chase from Santa Cruz to San Francisco, CHP officer Trent Cross said.

The driver of an Isuzu Trooper refused to pull over when University of Santa Cruz police tried to stop him for a traffic infraction at about 7:30 a.m., Cross said.

For the next two hours the man led CHP officers on a slow chase - sometimes traveling at 30 miles per hour - from Santa Cruz to San Francisco, CHP said.

CHP officers followed the driver across the Bay Bridge into San Francisco before he pulled over at Mission and Seventh streets at 9:45 a.m., Cross said.

The man was arrested for evading police, Cross said.
