A motorcyclist led police and Texas state troopers on an hourlong chase in and around Dallas Thursday night until all the action ended in a rather non-dramatic way.

After initially refusing to stop on Interstate 35 in Hill County, the motorcyclist headed into Dallas County as more law enforcement officials joined the chase, WFAA-TV reported.

But when the culprit apparently was waiting at a red light in Plano, a video camera captured an officer exiting his cruiser and simply knocking the motorcyclist off his wheels.

While crossing traffic may have prevented the biker from continuing his run from police, it's not clear why he followed the red-light law after breaking more serious ones.

Once the guy landed in the street, officers surrounded and cuffed him, the station noted.
