The Nebraska State Patrol has arrested Michael Pierce, 27, and Mary Kennison, 29, after a pursuit that began on Interstate 80 in Iowa Thursday morning. 

The pair has been charged with unlawful taking of more than $5,000, operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest, resisting arrest and willful reckless driving. 

According to the NSP, Pierce was driving a stolen jeep and swerved an Iowa State Trooper to avoid a spike strip, ramming the vehicle into two more Iowa Patrol cars. 

The stolen vehicle was from Greeley, Colorado. 

No Iowa or Nebraska troopers were injured.
