state-patrol-logoA weekend pursuit of a reported drunken driver led to the arrest of a Cozad man on numerous charges.

Just before 6:00 p.m., Saturday, October 26, Nebraska State Patrol dispatchers received calls from several concerned motorists of a gray Ford F150 pickup driving recklessly on Westbound I-80 between Brady and North Platte.  A trooper observed a vehicle matching the description approximately six miles east of North Platte and attempted a traffic stop.

The driver refused to stop and a short pursuit ensued.  The pickup continued to travel west on I-80 before exiting at the North Platte interchange heading north on Highway 83. The vehicle turned into the parking lot of a gas station near the interchange at which time the trooper performed a tactical maneuver disabling the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle, Jason R. Young, 42, Cozad was lodged in the Lincoln County Jail on charges to include Felony Flight to Avoid Arrest, 4th offense Felony Driving Under the Influence and Driving Under Suspension.
