A Cozad man faces numerous charges, including his fourth DUI, after leading a state trooper on a short pursuit.
The Nebraska State Patrol says 42-year-old Jason Young has been jailed in Lincoln County on charges of Felony Flight to Avoid Arrest, Driving Under Suspension and his 4th charge of Driving Under the Influence.
According to the patrol, it received numerous calls from concerned motorists about a pick-up driving recklessly westbound on I-80 between Brady and North Platte. A trooper attempted to stop the motorist six miles east of North Platte. The driver took off west on I-80, leaving the interstate at North Platte, driving north on Highway 83. The trooper cornered the vehicle at a gas station parking lot and made the arrest.
