A multi-county pursuit ended west of Neligh in the early morning hours on Saturday, which included use of stop spikes and a taser.
According to the Antelope County Sheriff's department, Shane Kelly Glasgow was arrested 4.5 miles west of Neligh on Highway 275 after he lost control of the stolen pickup he was driving. The 1994 Chevrolet was registered to Francis Langhorst of North Bend.
Sheriff Bob Moore said via a press release that his department was contacted by the Madison County Sheriff's Department and the Nebraska State Patrol that their officers were in pursuit of a blue pickup heading west on Highway 275 toward Antelope County.
As the pursuit entered the county, the Antelope County Sheriff's Department and Neligh Police Department joined in the pursuit and took the lead. Stop spikes were deployed in an attempt to disable the vehicle in Neligh but were unsuccessful. The pursuit continued through Neligh with Glasgow attempting to hit other officers' vehicles with the pickup.
The pursuit ended 4.5 miles west of Neligh on Highway 275 when Glasgow lost control and went into the north ditch. The driver was attempting to come back out of the ditch when an Antelope County deputy wedged his vehicle against the front of the pickup and keeping it from leaving the ditch.
Glasgow resisted arrest when officers attempted to arrest him, and a Taser was deployed. The subject was subdued by officers shortly after.
Glasgow was taken into custody and transported to the Antelope County Sheriff's Office and booked on seven accounts - flight to avoid arrest, resisting arrest, felony attempt of assault of an officer, obstructing an officer, possession of a stolen vehicle, willful reckless driving and driving under suspension.
Glasgow is currently being held at the Madison County Jail with his first court appearance set for Feb. 4 at 9:30 a.m.
