A weekend pursuit of a reported drunk driver led to the arrest of a Cozad man on numerous charges.

According to a Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman, just before 6:00 p.m., Saturday, State Patrol dispatchers received calls from several motorists of a gray Ford F150 pickup driving recklessly on Westbound I-80 between Brady and North Platte.

A trooper spotted a truck matching the description six miles east of North Platte and attempted a traffic stop. The driver refused to stop and a short pursuit ensued.

The pickup continued west on I-80 before exiting at the Highway 83 interchange.

The vehicle turned into the parking lot of a gas station near the interchange at which time the trooper performed a tactical maneuver disabling the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle, Jason R. Young, 42, Cozad is being held in the Lincoln County Jail on charges of Felony Flight to Avoid Arrest, 4th offense Felony Driving Under the Influence and Driving Under Suspension.
