LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) A 22-year-old Lincoln man accused of fleeing police has been given four to six years in prison for stealing a truck.

Online court records say Shawn Brooks was sentenced on Tuesday. He'd pleaded guilty to theft after prosecutors dropped a felony charge that he fled in a vehicle to avoid arrest.

Authorities say Brooks stole a pickup on Feb. 10 when the owner left it running near a drive-thru restaurant. Police say Brooks was captured when he ran following the truck's crash into a utility pole.
