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 says 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, Christopher Lynch, fled on foot.
Officers eventually found Lynch and took him into custody around 4 a.m. Sunday.
Deputies say Lynch is wanted in Colorado on a theft warrant and in Wyoming for probation violation.
