BEATRICE – A pursuit by a Gage County Sheriff’s Deputy ended with the arrest of a 19-year-old suspect near Beatrice, Thursday.

At around 3:45 p.m., the deputy clocked a southbound vehicle with his radar on U.S. Highway 77 traveling at 102-miles-per-hour.  The vehicle was observed speeding near the Locust Road intersection with the highway, about two miles south of Beatrice.

The deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver fled in his vehicle.  A pursuit ended at Southwest 45th and West Maple Road about four miles southwest of Beatrice, when one of the pursued vehicle’s tires came off a rim.
