LPD reported arresting a man who had assaulted them after an outburst that ended in a broken windshield

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- On Tuesday, at about 8:11 p.m., LPD officers responded to the report of a disturbance on Madison Avenue.

When they arrived, officers reported talking to neighbors who told them 25-year-old Jesse G. Adams had been pounding on the doors of residences and smashing a vehicle’s windshield with a shovel.

As officers attempted arresting Adams, they say he ripped his arms away from them and disregarding orders to quit resisting. Instead, officers say Adams started pulling the hair of an officer, then wrapped his arm around the officer’s neck in an attempt to put them in a chokehold.
