A vehicle pursuit involving multiple law enforcement agencies ended Wednesday morning on Highway 101 in Santa Maria.

Multiple witnesses reported seeing officers pursuing a vehicle southbound on the freeway and officers with guns drawn once the vehicle stopped south of Main Street.

Video posted on Facebook by JohnnyRay Montanio shows officers arresting a man wearing what appears to be green scrubs.

I don’t know what this guy did to shutdown The 101 South in Santa Maria, like 30 CHPs, Sheriffs and Helicopter, got off the exit, looked over and there he was!
