NSP: Connecticut Man Arrested After Leading Troopers On High Speed Chase Near Lincoln

A man is arrested after leading state troopers on a high-speed near Lincoln.

The Nebraska State Patrol reports early Tuesday morning, a trooper observed an eastbound vehicle going 123 mph along I-80 near Milford.

When the car refused to stop, a pursuit was initiated but halted due to public safety concerns after the vehicle exited I-80 on West O Street.

A short time later, another trooper located the vehicle traveling southbound at 98 miles per hour on NW 48th Street.

This time the trooper was able to perform a traffic stop and 21-year-old Jeffrey Hackett of Glastonbury, Connecticut was arrested for flight to avoid arrest, reckless driving, and traffic violations.
