A Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man who escaped from a Knox County, Nebraska, jail is back in custody after a chase.
Knox County Sheriff Don Henery says 32-year-old Michael James Sigsbee escaped from the exercise yard of the county jail in Center, Nebraska, on Thursday morning.
The Press & Dakotan of Yankton, S.D., reports that officers chased Sigsbee on foot until he stole a vehicle in Center. A Knox County deputy shot out a front tire, but Sigsbee kept driving until he crashed through a pasture gate southeast of Center. He was captured a half-mile from the crash.
Sigsbee is being held on a theft charge. He's also wanted in Iowa, where an arrest warrant was issued from Sioux County. Charges include forgery, theft, and controlled substance violations.
