A 19-year-old and a youth from Nipawin face charges after allegedly stealing a car from Indian Head, and being arrested in Brandon this weekend.
Police in the Manitoba city tried to pull the vehicle over early Sunday morning, but the driver took off.
A short chase ended when the driver got stuck and took off on foot, and jumped in the river, trying to evade capture.
Because of the cold water, he returned to shore, was arrested, and placed in a nice warm cell.
His passenger opted to stay dry and was also arrested.
