Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol arrested a Tennessee man early Friday morning after a pursuit that began in Iowa and ended in Bellevue.
It started around 4:30 a.m. Friday, when troopers were alerted by Iowa authorities about a 2006 Ford Mustang traveling in excess of 120 mph, approaching Nebraska on I-80.
The Mustang was running on bare rims at a high rate of speed as it crossed the state line, NSP spokesman Cody Thomas said.
Thomas said the Mustang left I-80 and traveled south into Sarpy County, with pieces of the car flying behind. At least one piece of debris damaged an NSP unit in pursuit.
The Mustang finally stopped near 25th and Cornhusker at approximately 4:50 a.m., and troopers took the driver, Larry Phillips, into custody.
Phillips, 37, was charged with felony flight to avoid arrest and willful reckless driving. He was taken to the Sarpy County Jail. Phillips will also face charges in Iowa.
