OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A Hy-Vee employee was arrested after a brief foot chase Friday morning.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Friday morning deputies arrived at the Hy-Vee near 79th and Cass Street to arrest a woman who worked there who had three felony warrants out of Douglas County.

The woman was identified by authorities as 20-year-old Tori Polite. Deputies explained to Polite that she was under arrest and that’s when she allegedly fled, leading them on a chase around the store and down into Little Papillion Creek.

Polite allegedly crossed the creek multiple times as she fled the deputies before eventually stopping. Deputies then helped her out of the creek and she was placed into custody.

Two of the felony warrants are for criminal impersonation and the third is for burglary.
