A Fremont man convicted of fleeing from police while being in possession of drugs was sentenced to spend time in Saunders County Jail Monday morning by Judge John Samson in Dodge County District Court.
Samson presided over Monday morning’s cases in Judge Geoffrey Hall’s absence.
Bryon L. Brohimer, 23, was sentenced to spend seven months in Saunders County Jail for the felony offense of flight to avoid arrest, and six months for being in possession of methamphetamine, a Class IV felony, Dodge County Deputy Attorney Marti Sleister said.
The sentences will run concurrently – together – and in addition to the jail time, Brohimer is required to be under 12 months of post-release supervision and face a two-year-long period of license revocation.
Through a plea agreement, additional charges were dropped, including: speeding 53 mph in a 35 mph zone, having no valid registration, driving with a revoked license, willful reckless driving and having no proof of insurance.
Brohimer was arrested shortly before midnight on April 28 when a Dodge County Sheriff’s Office deputy witnessed a motorcycle traveling westbound near the area of 23rd Street and Clarkson Street that appeared to be speeding, court records show.
The deputy activated his overhead lights and Brohimer failed to stop and turned northbound on Broad Street, taking off at a high rate of speed. After exiting off of Broad Street – Highway 77 – at the U.S. Highway 30/275 interchange, Brohimer reached speeds of 120 mph while attempting to allude the deputy.
Court records show the defendant continued heading eastbound on U.S. Highway 275 into Douglas County. Brohimer attempted to drive through a grass median near the first Valley exit before getting off of the motorcycle and laying it on its side. He was subsequently arrested.
While in custody, the operator of the motorcycle was identified as Brohimer. The motorcycle had no license plates, court records show.
A search of Brohimer led to the discovery of a white, crystal-like substance wrapped in paper inside of his wallet, later testing positive as being methamphetamine.
All crimes occurred in Dodge County, however, Brohimer was ultimately apprehended in Douglas County, court records show.
