SIBLEY, Iowa — A Sioux Falls, S.D. man was arrested early Thursday morning following alleged motor vehicle and foot chases that initially began in Worthington and elicited a response from multiple surrounding law enforcement agencies.

Isaac D. Plentyhorse, 29, was apprehended by an Osceola County Sheriff's Office deputy following a pursuit on foot after Plentyhorse crashed his vehicle into Otter Creek southwest of Sibley, a press release issued by the OCSO states.

The arrest stemmed from an attempted traffic stop around 1:22 a.m. by a Worthington police officer for a traffic violation. Plentyhorse didn’t stop and continued southbound into Osceola County, where he drove into Sibley.

During the pursuit in Sibley, Plentyhorse allegedly drove through multiple residences’ back yards, causing minor property damage. After allegedly crashing his vehicle into the creek, he fled on foot before being apprehended.

Plentyhorse has been charged with eluding, an aggravated misdemeanor; reckless driving and interference with official acts, simple misdemeanors; failure to maintain control; and multiple stop sign and other traffic violations.


Other assisting agencies include the Worthington Police Department, Nobles County Sheriff’s Office, Lyon County Sheriff’s Office and the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office.
