California Highway Patrol's Northern Division Air Operations helped Redding police officers arrest a man on the run, Friday evening.

According to CHP officials, RPD officers started a pursuit of a motorcycle, but because of the rider's reckless behavior, they had to cancel their chase.

The Helicopter 16 crew was over the area minutes later. The helicopter crew found the bike on Teton Drive and followed it to Oconner Avenue.

The crew reportedly watched the suspect ditch the bike and then run into a nearby home.

The suspect surrendered to RPD officers a short time later after CHP officers alerted them to his location.
