SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) — A 31-year-old Scottsbluff man wanted in two other states has been captured after a chase and hunt that lasted more than four hours.
The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were helping the Nebraska State Patrol at a Scottsbluff checkpoint around 11:30 p.m. Saturday when they saw a vehicle turn around as it approached the checkpoint. The vehicle accelerated away, with deputies in pursuit. Deputies say they followed the vehicle for several miles. It eventually ran off a highway and crashed in a field, where the driver fled on foot.
