A North Platte man who violated his parole led North Platte Police on a foot pursuit Monday evening.
At around 6:15 p.m., Officers responded to the Craft State Office Building at 200 South Silber to assist with a parole violation.
A Parole Officer told Police that after advising Christopher Mounteer that he was going to be arrested for a parole violation, Mounteer fled and departed in a red Honda Accord.
About a half hour later, an Officer observed the vehicle parked in an alleyway and was able to conduct an investigative stop near Carr and West 5th Street. They learned from the driver that Mounteer had fled from the vehicle on foot.
Shortly thereafter, Mounteer was observed running on West 6th Street and a foot pursuit ensued.
Officers were eventually able to corner Mounteer and restrain him in a garage in the 2100 block of West 5th.
Mounteer was arrested and transported to the Lincoln County Jail.
In addition to the parole violation, Mounteer was also charged with Resisting Arrest.
