Scottsbluff - A 31-year-old Scottsbluff man wanted in two other states has been captured after a chase and hunt that lasted more than four hours.

The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's Office said deputies were helping the Nebraska State Patrol at a Scottsbluff checkpoint around 11:30 p.m. Saturday when they saw a vehicle turn around to avoid the checkpoint.

The car accelerated away as deputies followed. Police said they followed the vehicle for several miles until the car eventually ran off a highway and crashed in a field. The driver then got out of the car and ran away on foot.

Officers eventually found the driver, who has been identified as Christopher Lynch, and took him into custody around 4 a.m. Sunday.

 Lynch is wanted in Colorado on a theft warrant and in Wyoming for probation violation.
