Two arrested following collision in northeast Lincoln

Two arrested following collision in northeast Lincoln


Lincoln Police arrested two men Wednesday evening after a suspected drunk driver collided with another vehicle.

Officers were called to the 6800 block of Platte Avenue shortly after 7 p.m. for a reported fight.

On their arrival, police found Michael P. Trammel, 40, holding Romulus J. Gehle, 43, in a chokehold.

According to witnesses, Gehle was driving west on Platte Avenue from 70th Street when the vehicle he was driving clipped Trammel's vehicle, damaging a side mirror.

Trammel followed Gehle and eventually got him to pull over and a fight ensued. During the melee, witnesses said Trammel told Gehle he was going to kill him.

Police arrested Trammel on suspected strangulation — a felony.

Officers arrested Gehle on third offense driving under the influence of alcohol, also a felony, after a breath test measured his blood-alcohol level at 0.204%, more than two times the legal limit of 0.08%.

Gehle was also booked for driving under a suspended license and careless driving.
