LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska inmate has been captured in Texas after a police pursuit, authorities say.

The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services reports that Brandon Britton was arrested Friday after a 6-mile (9.66 kilometers) pursuit by officers in Franklin County, Texas.

He is charged with felony evading arrest and other misdemeanors. Britton left the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln in May.

He and another inmate are accused of discarding their electronic monitoring devices.

Britton is serving a 10-year sentence in Nebraska for first-degree assault, meth charges, and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
