RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – A man who escaped federal custody in September is still on the run after an unsuccessful law enforcement pursuit in Rapid City.

Police say 26-year-old Eric Ladeaux led U.S. marshals, South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers and city police on a chase Monday night before crashing his vehicle and fleeing on foot. No one was hurt in the crash that involved another vehicle.

The Rapid City Journal reports that Ladeaux escaped in September from a minimum-security building in Rapid City where he was on supervised release for a weapons crime. The weapons crime was tied to an earlier aggravated assault conviction.
