Lincoln man arrested after armed negotiation, foot pursuit
LINCOLN, Neb -- An armed Lincoln man was arrested Monday after allegedly violating a protection order.
A 24-year-old woman reported that her husband, a 31-year-old Lincoln man, was violating a protection order by arriving at her residence in the 500 block of Fletcher Avenue.
Upon arrival, Lincoln Police officers learned that the man had a handgun with him, something he was not permitted to possess as a result of the active protection order.
As officers approached the residence, they say the man walked out from the patio carrying the gun. A police report states that officers negotiated with the man for over an hour outside of the residence attempting to de-escalate the situation as he refused to drop the gun.
At one point, LPD says, the man fled from officers on foot and officers followed him to the area Interstate 180 and Interstate 80.
It was there that officers took the man into custody without further incident. A loaded Glock 9mm handgun was discovered in his possession and he was found to be a convicted felon. Several charges are pending following a mental health evaluation.
