McCOOK, Neb. (AP) - A southwest Nebraska man who stole a semitrailer and called 911 after he got it stuck in a ditch has been sentenced to prison.

The McCook Daily Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1w8FjTu ) that 39-year-old Dwayne Hines of Palisade was sentenced to four to six years after pleading guilty to a theft charge. He stole the semitrailer from Karrer Park in September and told a witness he was going to drive it to Texas.

Authorities say he drove it more than 20 miles north before he got the vehicle stuck and called 911.

He tells deputies he was kidnapped by someone who stole a truck.
