A Lincoln Police Office was struck by a vehicle when a suspect fled the scene early Sunday morning.  Police were called to the 6300 block of Rim Rock Road to investigate a suspicious vehicle.  When they arrived, police say 19-year-old Brennan Randall intentionally accelerated towards the officers.  One officer suffered pain and discomfort after being struck by the vehicle’s mirror but didn’t suffer serious injuries.  Brennan eventually abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot.  He later turned himself into police and was cited for assaulting an officer.
