Man Charged in High-Speed Chase Through Nebraska
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — Two people from South Dakota were arrested in Nebraska after a high speed chase through Howard and Hall counties.
The Grand Island Independent reports 30-year-old Lucas Johnson of Mitchell, South Dakota, was arrested in Hall County on Tuesday. He is charged with operating a vehicle to avoid arrest, driving under the influence and refusing to submit to a drug test.
A female passenger in the van with him also faces a similar charge.
Police say the chase started near St. Paul when the driver of a minivan left a gas station without paying. They say the van reached speeds of 105 mph before it crashed near Grand Island.
Johnson also faces a theft charge in Howard County.
He is being held on $15,000 bond. Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney.
