Nebraska man charged in chase through 3 states
MARYVILLE (AP) -A Nebraska man is charged in Missouri after a police chase that wound through parts of three states before ending in northwest Missouri.
Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice on Tuesday charged 37-year-old Neal Alan Ulfers, of Lincoln, Nebraska, with tampering and resisting arrest, both felonies.
Ulfers was arrested Monday after the chase ended in Maryville. He is accused of stealing a pickup truck from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and eluding officers in southwest Iowa before entering northwest Missouri. Investigators say the chase reached speeds up to 80 mph, and Ulfers sometimes drove the wrong direction on highways, two-lane blacktops and gravel roads.
The Maryville Daily Forum reports Ulfers was finally forced off the road by a state trooper.
Online court records do not list an attorney for Ulfers.
