Police say he tossed a gun out of the hotel window. 

It happened Sunday morning.  Lincoln police went to a northeast Lincoln hotel to serve an arrest warrant on 31-year-old Jeremy Hayes.  A woman and child were also in the hotel room.

Hayes was wanted on a warrant.  Police say when Hayes saw officers outside of the room, he opened a window and pushed out the screen.

“Instead of jumping from the window, Jeremy Hayes through out a stocking cap which we found was concealing a 9 millimeter semi–automatic handgun,” Sgt. Jeri Roeder said.

Hayes was arrested for multiple charges: Felon in possession of a firearm, two prior domestic assaults and a warrant for possessing marijuana.
