A federal fugitive who led authorities on a chase in South Dakota before getting away again is back in custody.
Twenty-six-year-old Eric Ladeaux escaped in September from a minimum-security building in Rapid City where he was on supervised release for a weapons crime tied to an earlier aggravated assault conviction.
U.S. marshals, state Highway Patrol troopers and Rapid City police tried to chase him down Monday night but he fled on foot after crashing his vehicle. A fugitive task force tracked him down and arrested him Wednesday afternoon. Details were not immediately available.
