AMES, Iowa (AP) - A man police have been looking for since April on suspicion of false imprisonment and threatening reporters in Le Grand has been arrested in Ames.

KCCI-TV (https://bit.ly/1M98ZHZ ) reports 27-year-old Chad Bryant was arrested Thursday evening at a car dealership after police responded to a report of a stolen car. Officials say when they spotted Bryant, he took off on foot and was eventually apprehended.

Police say another man led officers on a high-speed chase that lasted about 30 minutes.

Bryant had been arrested on a false imprisonment charge after a 16-year-old told police he was held against his will at a residence by Bryant and several others.

KCCI-TV says Bryant pointed what looked like a rifle at its news crew and poured water over a cameraman’s head outside a home following his arrest in April. Bryant left the home, prompting the search.
