Suspect arrested after attack on NSP cruiser in Omaha
LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) — Nebraska State Patrolmen, with the assistance of the Omaha Police Department, arrested an Omaha man early this morning after a chase in which a suspect stabbed a patrol unit.
At approximately 11:15 p.m. Friday, the NSP was informed that the Able 1 OPD was tracking an alleged stolen vehicle, a Chevrolet Silverado, that entered Nebraska from Iowa. At approximately 11:35 p.m., Able 1 pilots directed soldiers to an apartment building near 99th Street and Park Drive, where two soldiers were able to locate the suspicious vehicle.
When the soldiers arrived at the residence, the driver of the Silverado accelerated, drove through the yard, crashed into the soldier’s cruiser and fled. The paratrooper was not seriously injured, but the impact disabled the cruiser. After confirming that the soldier was not seriously injured, another soldier began to pursue Silverado.
As the vehicle fled, Omaha police officers were able to successfully deploy the stop sticks to slow the vehicle. The Silverado stopped at an apartment complex near 96th Street and Nina while the driver fled on foot. Around midnight, police officers managed to find the driver and detain him. The Silverado was confirmed to have been stolen.
The driver, 29-year-old Darrell Boyer of Omaha, was jailed in the Douglas County Jail for assaulting an officer, fleeing to avoid arrest, reckless driving, theft to obtain stolen property, leaving the scene of an accident, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving under a suspension. .
