SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 40-year-old Sioux City man accused of trying to flee officers by jumping into the Missouri River faces kidnapping charges.

The Sioux City Police Department says Chance Michaels had forced his estranged wife into a vehicle Saturday evening and that his vehicle soon got a flat tire. Officer Bradley Echter says Michaels tried to take care of the flat at Chautauqua Park, but he jumped into the river as officers arrived.

Police say some people on a boat helped pull Michaels from the river, and he was taken into custody at a boat ramp.

He is charged with kidnapping, assault and related crimes. Online jail records say Michaels remained in custody on Monday, pending $58,000 in bail. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
