Lincoln woman led Nebraska troopers on sluggish pursuit, patrol says

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Lincoln woman was arrested after a not-so-high-speed pursuit with a Nebraska trooper on Wednesday.

Around 5 p.m., a trooper saw a Toyota minivan stopped in the center lane of westbound traffic on Interstate 80 in north Lincoln.

Multiple vehicles almost hit the minivan, according to the patrol.

When the trooper approached the vehicle, the driver sped off.

Eventually, the trooper caught up with the vehicle and got the minivan to come to a stop on the shoulder.

The driver, 30-year-old Tammy Tran, refused to give any information to the trooper and drove off at a slow speed, the patrol said.

The trooper then began pursuing Tran, who reached 45 mph.

Ultimately, the trooper was able to stop Tran before taking her into custody, the patrol said.

Tran was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, flight to avoid arrest and obstruction.

She was taken to the Lancaster County Jail.
