WASHBURN, N.D. (AP) - A man who led police on a chase in a stolen car and then fled on foot was apprehended after spending about eight hours in a central North Dakota cornfield.

The McLean County Sheriff’s Office says the man fled from a Highway Patrol trooper trying to make a traffic stop for reckless driving on U.S. Highway 83 shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday. The suspect eventually stopped and ran into a cornfield northwest of Wilton.

Rural residents were advised to lock their homes, vehicles and outdoor buildings.

Authorities apprehended the suspect about 10 p.m. without incident. Authorities identified him as a 35-year-old homeless man from Fargo who had two arrest warrants out of Cass County. Formal charges were pending in the McLean County incident.
