TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Topeka police say an Indiana fugitive is jailed after leading police on two brief car chases.

Topeka police Lt. Ron Gish says 38-year-old Jamie Allen Sigman of Topeka was arrested Wednesday and faces several felony and traffic charges. Gish says Sigman had a fugitive justice warrant issued for him in Indiana, and a warrant with the city of Topeka, but he didn't know what the warrants were for.

Gish says the chase began when officers tried to stop a pickup, which sped off and crashed into a curb. A passenger jumped out but the driver drove off again, only to collide with pickup about a mile away. The driver tried to flee on foot but was arrested.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/14qmgqz ) the pickup truck driver suffered only minor injuries.
