A 25-year-old woman has been arrested after a slow-speed chase on Interstate 80 in Lincoln.
The Nebraska State Patrol says Leahlia Beatty, of Beaver Crossing, was taken into custody early Wednesday morning after the vehicle struck a road sign and stopped in a ditch along the interstate. Lancaster County Jail records say Beatty remained in custody later Wednesday. Online court records don't list the name of her attorney.
The patrol says a trooper spotted a vehicle heading east in the westbound lanes at 1:20 a.m. The vehicle did a U-turn and began heading west in the eastbound lanes. Spiked stop strips flattened the vehicle's tires and it soon went out of control, ending up in the ditch.
The patrol says the 10-minute chase reached speeds of 40 mph.
