STANTON, Neb. -- An Iowa man was arrested after a crash in northeast Nebraska Tuesday night.

At approximately 7:30 p.m., the Stanton County Sheriff's Office responded to a call of a vehicle in the ditch near 839th Road and 561st Avenue northwest of Stanton.

Shortly after authorities arrived, the lone driver, 58-year-old John Lacey of Sioux City, was reportedly discovered to be intoxicated and was placed under arrest for aggravated DWI-3rd offense.

He was booked at the sheriff’s office where he tested three times the legal blood alcohol limit, according to Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger. 

Lacey was later released on a $1000 cash bond.

Unger said Lacey has five prior DWI convictions on his drivers abstract.
