A man was arrested after Lincoln police say he stole a car, then led officers on a short chase Friday morning.
The car, which was reported stolen Thursday morning, was spotted near South 17th and L streets around 1:30 a.m. When police tried to pull it over, the driver, 45-year-old Wasim Jihad, refused to stop. Following a brief pursuit, Jihad stopped, got out and ran.
He was soon captured and faces charges of auto theft, possession of stolen property, fleeing to avoid arrest and not having a driver's license.
