(Newser) – A Saturday night chase in Nebraska involved police cruisers chasing down ... a police cruiser. Stanly Colby, an armed, uniformed Fairbury police officer, allegedly stole the cruiser while "distraught," 1011now.com reports. Several law enforcement agencies got involved in the chase, during which Colby avoided spike strips, before he finally stopped and was arrested near North Platte. The 40-year-old faces possession of stolen property, and possibly other, charges. No details on motive were available, other than Colby was reportedly trying to get to McCook, KWBE reports.
