OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A motorcyclist doing wheelies and other stunts at high speeds on a Bay Area freeway was arrested after a California Highway Patrol airplane caught him on video.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Corey McDonah was taken into custody Wednesday after he parked his orange Kawasaki at his home in Oakland.

Earlier, the CHP says, McDonah hit speeds of up to 120 mph on eastbound Interstate 580 while doing wheelies and other stunts, including standing on the bike.

He was spotted by a pilot in the CHP plane, Air 37, who radioed officers in patrol cruisers.

The pilot also told his counterparts on the ground that the entire episode was caught on video.

McDonah was arrested and booked at an Oakland jail on suspicion of reckless driving.
