In a deal with prosecutors, 36-year-old Frank Dougherty pleaded no contest to misdemeanor flight to avoid arrest.
Dougherty is from Harrington, Del.
The Nebraska State Patrol says Dougherty was stopped the night of July 8 in south-central Nebraska, suspected of not paying for gas at a station earlier that evening.
As the trooper approached the car, Dougherty sped off down Interstate 80.
After a short chase, Dougherty exited onto a county road, then cut through a farmstead into a cornfield.
Troopers later found his car but not Dougherty. He was arrested the next morning near the Minden interchange.
