Man arrested on suspicion of DUI after chase west of Lincoln, sheriff’s office says

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A man has been accused of driving under the influence in a northwest Lancaster County pursuit on Friday, the sheriff’s office says.

Just after midnight, a deputy tried pulling over a Dodge Dart for fake plates, but the driver, a 24-year-old Lincoln man, refused to stop.

After a pursuit, the man eventually stopped near Northwest 112th and West Superior Streets, according to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office.

He was arrested on suspicion of having a fictitious license plate, driving under suspension, aggravated DUI, flight to avoid arrest and having no valid registration.

The sheriff’s office says the driver had a blood alcohol content of .204, which is nearly three times the legal limit.
