OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- A man is in custody after a wild chase that started in Sonoma County and ended in West Oakland on Tuesday.

SKY7 followed the pursuit as it was coming to an end where at one point, the truck's tailgate nearly fell off and ended up dragging on the ground.

The driver also narrowly missed hitting a bicyclist as he turned a corner and not long after that, he pulled over and got out of the truck.
