The Nebraska State Patrol says no bomb was found Tuesday in an incident that led the patrol to shut down a stretch of Interstate 80 east of Lincoln during morning rush-hour traffic.
All lanes of the interstate reopened around 9:30 a.m. after being shut down for about two hours.
Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins says a trooper stopped to assist a man walking near the interstate around 7:15 A.M. Collins says as the trooper was driving the man to his car, the man began acting irrationally and indicated he had a bomb in his car.
The patrol's bomb squad used a robot to check the car.
Collins identified the motorist as 39 year-old Ivan Juric of Edgewood, Colorado. She said Juric has been "voluntarily committed."
Traffic was rerouted to Cornhusker Highway during the closure.
