Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol, with assistance of the Omaha Police Department, have arrested a suspect following a pursuit in west Omaha.

At approximately 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, a trooper observed a Buick Regal driving with no license plates near 132nd Street and West Center Road. The trooper attempted a traffic stop, but the vehicle refused to stop and fled northbound on 132nd Street. The trooper initiated a pursuit.

The vehicle then fled eastbound on Dodge, with speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. As the vehicle approached 90th Street, it turned around and began traveling westbound on Dodge. The vehicle then exited Dodge at 132nd Street. It attempted to perform another U-turn and struck a curbed median, disabling the vehicle.

The lone occupant of the vehicle then fled on foot into a business park northwest of 132nd and Dodge, but was quickly apprehended by an Omaha Police Officer. The suspect was found to be in possession of methamphetamine.

The suspect, Jeremy Binns, 43, of Iowa, was arrested for willful reckless driving, flight to avoid arrest, possession of a controlled substance, driving during revocation, and no valid registration. He was transported to Bergan Mercy Hospital for medical clearance and then lodged in Douglas County Corrections.
