Man arrested for reportedly assaulting trooper at Nebraska Crossing
Authorities on Wednesday arrested a Council Bluffs man for reportedly assaulting a Nebraska State Trooper near Gretna.
Acting on information about a hit-and-run crash in Omaha, the trooper found the suspect’s vehicle in the parking lot of Nebraska Crossing.
The driver appeared to be sleeping, and the trooper knocked on the window, after which the driver woke up and threw open the door, striking the trooper in the chest, the patrol said.
The man charged at the trooper and a scuffle ensued, ultimately ending with the trooper deploying a taser.
The suspect, Jared Raymon, 44, was arrested on multiple charges.
The patrol said a search of Raymon’s vehicle turned up an open alcohol container, firearm, and multiple containers of marijuana.
