After making a traffic stop, Harrylee Stewart, 29, of Paxton was found to be under the influence of alcohol in possession of marijuana, according to an NSP spokesperson.

Stewart was arrested for driving under the influence (2nd offense). He was jailed for the DUI and cited for possessing less than an ounce of pot, a infaction. He was also texting while driving, the NSP report said.


Fire

A refrigerated semi-trailer caught fire at around 11 p.m. on Saturday, about 22 miles east of North Platte on I-80, closing both eastbound lanes for near two hours.

The trailer was fully engulfed by the fire and a total loss. The trailer had been disconnected from the tractor, which was safely pulled away.

Traffic was diverted to U.S. 30 at Brady while the eastbound lanes were closed.


Rollover

A few hours later, around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, a semi-tractor-trailer rolled over 54 miles west of North Platte I-80.

The truck apparently caught the edge of the shoulder and rolled in the traffic lanes.

Westbound lanes were blocked for a little over an hour while crews moved the trailer off the road.

There were two occupants but no one was injured, the NSP report said.
