Man almost pins officer with car at north Lincoln gas station, police say

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A man caused havoc late Monday night after being awoken from a slumber at a gas station, Lincoln Police say.

Just after 9 p.m., officers arrived at the Kwik Shop near 14th and Adams Streets and found 25-year-old Delano Proctor passed out in his vehicle.

Officers tried waking Proctor, but his vehicle was locked, according to police.

When Lincoln Fire & Rescue crews arrived, Proctor woke up and saw officers near his vehicle.

He then started his car and began backing up, which nearly pinned an officer between vehicles, police say.

Proctor drove forward, then immediately put the vehicle into reverse and struck a police cruiser and another car before leaving the parking lot.

Officers chased Proctor until he crashed into another vehicle near 14th Street and Antelope Valley Parkway.

Officers ordered Proctor to get out of the vehicle, but he did not comply and tried to drive away, according to police.

Eventually, a state trooper shot pepper balls into the vehicle, which allowed officers to take Proctor into custody.

He was arrested on suspicion of second-degree attempted assault on an officer, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and fleeing to avoid arrest.

He was also cited on suspicion of resisting arrest, willful reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, first offense of driving under the influence, refusing a chemical test, open container in a motor vehicle, driving under suspension, no proof of ownership and no proof of insurance.
