Man got two DUIs in one night, Lincoln Police say

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lincoln Police say a man was taken into custody twice in the same night for driving while under the influence of alcohol.

At around 9:45 p.m. on Monday, 26-year-old Joshua Steckley was pulled over near 27th and E Streets in a traffic stop.

That stop ended with Steckley being taken into custody on suspicion of DUI. His blood alcohol content was .145.

Police say he was cited and turned over to someone sober, who drove him home.

Steckley’s car was the only one involved in that crash, and he was transported to jail.
