LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A man has been arrested after Lincoln police say he stole a vehicle from a car dealership.

Sgt. John Walsh says workers at DuTeau Chevrolet reported on Monday afternoon that someone had stolen a 2015 Chevy Camaro. Nebraska State Patrol troopers tracked the car for about an hour before Lincoln police officers began a pursuit.

Walsh says officers tried to arrest the 21-year-old suspect, but he rammed the vehicle into a patrol car before taking off. Police worked with the car dealership’s employees, who reached out to OnStar to shut the car off remotely.

Walsh says officers eventually were able to arrest the man on suspicion of felony theft, fleeing to avoid arrest and other charges.
