Troopers arrest teen following pursuit in Lincoln

(Lincoln, NE) -- A teen is arrested following a pursuit in Lincoln Tuesday morning.

The Nebraska State Patrol says around 2:00 Tuesday morning, a trooper spotted two motorcycles without license plates stopped on O street. Investigators say the trooper attempted to pull the motorcyclists near 56th and O, but both fled at a high rate of speed. The NSP says the trooper initiated a pursuit, as the motorcycles fled eastbound outside city limits. The state patrol says one motorcyclist turned northbound, while the other continued on Highway 34 with speeds of around 100 miles per hour.

The NSP says as the motorcycle approached 120th street, the rider voluntarily stopped the motorcycle. The rider, a 17-year-old, was then taken into custody without incident. Investigators say the trooper located brass knuckles in the rider’s pocket and a concealed handgun in his backpack.

The teen was placed at the Lancaster County Youth Services Center for willful reckless driving, carrying a concealed weapon, and flight to avoid arrest.
