NSP said Dillon Oaks exited at mile marker 366 near Utica, while Tate Oaks missed the exit and stopped on the shoulder where he was arrested. 

Troopers ultimately pursued Dillon Oaks into downtown Lincoln, where he attempted to hide in a parking garage and was taken into custody without further incident. 

Both men were arrested for willful reckless driving, flight to avoid arrest, and no motorcycle endorsement.
