WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita man is jailed after a chase that involved canoeing down a river.
Authorities say the drama, which lasted several hours, began Wednesday evening when deputies tried to stop a suspected stolen car in southwest Sedgwick County.
The car chase ended when deputies put down spike strips, prompting the man to run into a field and jump into a canoe on the Ninnescah River.
After several hours, the man allegedly stole a second vehicle before being cornered and arrested.
KAKE-TV reports authorities believe the suspect is connected to several thefts and burglaries in three counties.
