A motorcyclist has been arrested in Iowa, charged with a long list of violations, after fleeing state troopers from both Nebraska and Iowa on Interstate 80 at speeds topping 100 miles per hour.
The Nebraska State Patrol reports 22-year-old Devon Brogdon of Omaha was arrested in Iowa after a foot pursuit when Iowa troopers forced the motorcycle to stop.
According to NSP, the pursuit began early Friday evening when a Nebraska trooper clocked the motorcycle going 90 mph in a 65 mph zone on I-80 in Lincoln. When the trooper turned on his lights and siren, the motorcyclist took off, reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph. The trooper pulled back due to the motorcyclist’s speed and dangerous driving, calling on NSP Aviation Support to pick up the pursuit.
The motorcyclist continued at speeds in excess of 80 mph, passing traffic between Lincoln and Omaha on the inside shoulder. Several troopers monitored the bike as the NSP helicopter followed.
Iowa State Patrol troopers picked up the pursuit with the NSP helicopter providing support. Iowa trooper cornered the rider, arrested him, and turned him over to NSP to be returned to Lincoln.
Brogdon has been charged with Flight to Avoid Arrest, Willful Reckless Driving, Driving Under Suspension, Speeding, Failure to Signal, Driving on the Shoulder, No Motorcycle Endorsement, No Proof of Insurance, Failing to Display the Proper Number of License Plates, and Operating an Unregistered Vehicle.
