COLUMBUS, Neb. -- A 22-year-old Schuyler man was arrested over the weekend after he reportedly fled from authorities and attempted to hide under a vehicle.

Shortly after 8:15 a.m. on Saturday, a driver traveling through an alley in Columbus attempted to turn onto 26th Avenue. According to Platte County Sheriff Ed Wemhoff, the driver of the vehicle had to take evasive action to avoid colliding with a sheriff's deputy on 26th Avenue.

According to Wemhoff, the deputy turned toward the vehicle, which immediately accelerated rapidly in an attempt to elude the deputy. The deputy attempted to stop the vehicle for the failure to yield, as well as speeding.

Wemhoff said the driver of the vehicle refused to stop and continued in their attempt to elude the deputy and other law enforcement. The vehicle reportedly continued north through Columbus where the driver then traveled eastbound on the Parkway.

The driver eventually drove the vehicle into the parking lot of the apartment complex Flats on 5th, Wemhoff said. The driver reportedly left the vehicle and then attempted to hide under a parked car in the parking lot. The driver was located and taken into custody.

The driver, 22-year-old Connor Krivanek from Schuyler, was transported to the Platte County Detention Facility where he was jailed on the charges of Flight to Avoid Arrest (Felony), Willful Reckless Driving, Driving During Revocation (4th or subsequent offense), Failure to Yield Right of Way and Stop Sign Violation. Bond had been set at $2,500, which Krivanek has since posted and has been released.

The Platte County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in the apprehension of Krivanek by the Columbus Police Department, according to a press release issued by the sheriff's office.
