County court: Substance abuse, domestic violenceTell North Platte what you think

Tyler Bush, 27, of North Platte, was arraigned in Lincoln County Court Tuesday on charges of driving on a suspended license and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol for the fourth time.

Bush was stopped by a Nebraska State Patrolman for a traffic offense. The officer said he saw signs of intoxication and administered field sobriety tests, which Bush failed, according to statements made in court.

Bush’s bond is high, at $100,000.

He was convicted in Lincoln County District Court in September 2010 for the third time for driving under the influence, for which he was sentenced to two years probation.

Bush also has prior convictions in 2005 and 2007 for DUI, and according to Lincoln County jail records, he has been arrested a total of six times for DUI.

No details were given as to what types of edibles were found.

Dix told Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo that he would hire his own attorney. His bond is set at $100,000.

Dancer will face arraignment in county court Wednesday.


Shawna M. Warner (also known as Shawna Klatt), 35, of Wyoming, was read her rights and informed that she is on an extradition hold for Wyoming.

Lincoln County judge Michael Piccolo told Warner that Lincoln County will hold her for 10 days and if Wyoming officials don’t pick her up within that time, she will be released.
