SALINA, Kan., July 10 (UPI) -- A New Hampshire man who was dressed in a unique way allegedly led police on a bizarre high-speed chase that ended in a Kansas soybean field.

A deputy allegedly saw Aaron Jansen, who was wearing a cowboy hat and a dress, speeding, so he started to give chase.

Jansen drove his car, which was tagged up with "derogatory statements about law enforcement," into the field in Salina and began driving in circles.

While officers set up a perimeter, Jansen began tossing CDs and blankets out of the car while quoting Bible verses and flashing peace signs. Sheriff Glen Kochanowski told WMUR that Jansen even slowed the car down and "surfed" on the roof.

The soybean field fiasco went on for about 40 minutes and Jansen was pepper-sprayed several times.

After he finally surrendered, Jansen was charged with fleeing and eluding, obstruction, reckless driving and speeding.
