A man is behind bars after leading Kern County Sheriff's deputies and the California Highway Patrol on a chase in East Bakersfield.
 
KCSO's watch commander says deputies tried to pull over a car around 1:30 Friday morning off Comanche Drive and Muller Road.
 
Deputies ran the license plate and realized it was stolen. The driver took off and the CHP jumped in to help. A spike strip took out the tires.
 
However, the driver, identified as 25-year-old James Narajano, kept going. 
 
He was eventually taken into custody after about 30 minutes.
 
KCSO said he had warrants for his arrest.
