Just before 6 p.m. Saturday, Nebraska State Patrol dispatchers received calls from several concerned motorists of a westbound gray Ford F150 pickup driving recklessly on I-80 between Brady and North Platte.

A trooper observed a vehicle matching the description approximately six miles east of North Platte and attempted to stop it, Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said. The driver refused to stop and a short chase ensued. The pickup continued west on I-80 before exiting at the North Platte interchange and turning north on U.S. Highway 83.

The vehicle turned into the parking lot of a gas station near the interchange and the trooper "performed a tactical maneuver, disabling the vehicle," Collins said.

The driver Jason R. Young, 42, of Cozad was taken to the Lincoln County Jail, charged with felony flight to avoid arrest, fourth offense felony driving under the influence and driving under suspension.
