TECUMSEH – A Lincoln man is charged with flight to avoid arrest after allegedly fleeing police from Highway 50 near Cook to just before the weigh station on Highway 2 at Nebraska City.
A Johnson County sheriff’s deputy says he was pursuing a Toyota Camry on Jan. 18, when it narrowly missed a head-on collision with oncoming traffic on Highway 50 near Cook. The deputy said the Camry went through Syracuse at 90 mph.
Spike strips were used on Highway 2 west of the weigh station and the deputy says the man continued driving on four rims before he was taken into custody.
The Nebraska State Patrol and Otoe County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the arrest of 26-year-old Carlos Perez Ramos.
