Man Pleads No Contest to Charges From Jan. Car Pursuit

Ryan Gabel

A North Platte man has entered a plea of no contest after a pursuit to avoid arrest in Lincoln County.

Ryan Gabel, 24, entered the plea in Lincoln County District Court Monday on charges of avoiding arrest and DUI.

The charges stem from a January incident; officers pursued a car in North Platte going nearly 60 miles an hour.

Shortly after, witnesses saw the car crash into another vehicle.

Gabel fled the scene, but was later apprehended.
