A 23-year-old Wichita, Kansas, man was arrested Saturday afternoon after he led law enforcement officers on multiple pursuits over the weekend.

Dylan Yohe was arrested at 4 p.m. on an outstanding Kansas warrant, according to a Nebraska State Patrol media release.

Yohe initially provided false information to law enforcement officers, but a trooper confirmed his identity with a mobile fingerprinting device.

Yohe also was arrested on suspicion of flight to avoid arrest, willful reckless driving, no operator’s license, criminal mischief, trespassing, criminal impersonation, open alcohol container, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was taken to the Custer County Jail.

The weekend pursuits involved the State Patrol, the Nebraska Games and Parks Department and the Blaine, Cherry, Brown, Logan, Hooker and Thomas County sheriff’s offices as well as the Thomas County Volunteer Fire Department.

According to the media release:

At 8 p.m. Friday, a state trooper attempted to stop a Dodge pickup for speeding on U.S. Highway 83 north of Thedford.

During an ensuing chase, the pickup drove through a pasture fence and through a field. At one point, a motorcycle fell from the back of the pickup bed and was later impounded.

Law enforcement ended the pursuit Friday but remained in the area to watch for the vehicle.

Late Saturday morning, members of the Brown and Cherry County sheriff’s offices unsuccessfully chased Yohe, but law enforcement remained in the area again. They found him with his vehicle that afternoon, stopped on Nebraska Highway 91 north of Dunning, where it had run out of gas.
