The driver of a Smart Car pulled over by a California Highway Patrol officer last night in North Hollywood fled after giving the officer his license and registration. The one and a half hour chase whipped through the Valley and eventually up to eastbound 210 Freeway in Sylmar when police pulled back and ultimately abandoned ship when they confirmed the driver's home address. No word if he went straight home to get arrested or not.
