A Wisconsin police chief who faces sexual assault and other charges has been found in south-central Nebraska.

The Nebraska State Patrol says 29-year-old Shay Larson was taken
into custody just after 1 a.m. Friday at a truck stop near the Elm
Creek interchange on Interstate 80.

Wisconsin authorities had passed along tips that Larson might be driving a semitrailer in the area. Nebraska troopers checked the truck stop and found a big rig with Wisconsin plates. The patrol says Larson was in the truck.

He remains in the Buffalo County Jail, awaiting extradition to Wisconsin.

The patrol says Larson is chief in the village of Readstown, Wisconsin. He's is charged in Vernon County with sexual assault,
misconduct in public office, disorderly conduct and obstructing an
officer.
