DYKER HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (PIX11) -- A wild police chase that began in New Jersey ended in Brooklyn Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities say 41-year-old Anthony Mazza failed to show up to sentencing for an undisclosed crime in Monmouth County. Mazza had a warrant issued for his arrest Feb. 13.

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force spotted Mazza's car in Old Bridge, N.J. being driven by a woman, with Mazza in the passenger seat and another man in the backseat. Authorities pulled the vehicle over and were walking towards the car when the suspect pushed the woman out of the car, jumped in the driver's seat and sped off.  New Jersey State Police and Port Authority Police became involved as Mazza sped from the Garden State Parkway, evaded a road block and headed towards the Verranzano Bridge.

The pursuit finally ended in Brooklyn at Cropsy Ave. and 14th Ave. in Dyker Heights.

Mazza, as well as the other man in the car, were arrested on the scene.
