Not only did a North Platte man allegedly drive off in the wrong vehicle after he left a bar Wednesday night, he shouldn't have been driving at all.
At around 10 p.m. a North Platte police officer responded to a report of a stolen vehicle outside Brother’s Bar.
A man told the cops that an acquaintance, Shane Fisher, 26, took his 1999 Chevy Silverado without permission.
Later, the officer found Fisher near his residence in the 400 block of N. Bare. Fisher was in possession of and operating the Chevy pickup, Police Information Officer Rodney Brown said.
When police tried to administer field sobriety tests, Fisher tried to run away but was quickly apprehended and restrained, Brown said. He was taken to the Lincoln County jail and charged with multiple crimes:
• Driving under the influence, 4th offense,
• Resisting arrest,
• Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle,
• Driving under a 15-year revocation of his driver's license,
• Refusal to submit to a preliminary breath test,
• Refusal to submit to a chemical test.
In court Thursday, Fisher got a felony charge of driving under suspension. His bond was set at $20,000. His preliminary hearing was set for Aug. 16.
