State Patrol Pursuit Under Investigation
A pursuit through downtown Lincoln last weekend is now under investigation. Sheriff's deputies say Christopher Gonzales, 34, was driving irratically in Waverly when the pursuit began. But after a chase on Interstate 80, he started to head downtown. That's when deputies called off the chase. But a State Trooper who was helping out, continued it.
The chase went through downtown and the height of post game traffic. Several Lincoln police officers were almost hit. Now the troopers' actions are under investigation by Internal Affairs.
Gonzales was taken into custody for attempted first degree assault on an officer and fleeing to avoid arrest.
