LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Police say a 38-year-old woman stole a semitrailer carrying beer and then crashed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Authorities say they believe the woman got into the truck Wednesday and locked the semitrailer’s door while the driver was unloading the vehicle at a convenience store.

Lincoln police Officer Katie Flood said when police got to the store, the woman drove out of the lot and hit a police cruiser. A pursuit ensued before the chase was called off for safety reasons.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln police say they found the vehicle on the school’s East Campus crashed near the veterinary science building parking lot. School police Capt. Jerry Plessel said the woman was cited for criminal mischief and willful reckless driving.

Lincoln police arrested the woman on suspicion of auto theft, fleeing arrest, attempted assault on a police officer and driving under the influence.
