An Omaha police sergeant has been reassigned as investigators look into an incident that resulted in his being charged with reckless driving and aggravated assault.If you or I (mere common citizens) had pulled their firearm on another driver, do you think we would be charged with a misdemeanor?
Sgt. Lance Harrison, 42, pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charges Wednesday in Sarpy County Court. He is accused of pulling a gun on a motorist who reported him for reckless driving. The incident occurred May 24 in Bellevue.
Officer accused of pulling gun on 911 caller
Capt. Herb Evers of the Bellevue Police Department said officers were called to the southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 75 at Capehart Road to investigate.Demanded?
Evers said a man called 911 to report a reckless driver, then stayed on the line as he followed the driver.
The 911 caller said the other driver then stopped his vehicle.
The driver walked back to the 911 caller's vehicle, pulled a gun, identified himself as a police officer and demanded to know why the caller was following him.
Evers said the police officer then left. Based on a license plate number, Bellevue police went to Harrison's Bellevue home to continue the investigation.Deferential treatment, again?
Evers said Harrison was uncooperative and refused to come outside.
This sounds like Gov Chester's driver owns the road minus the governor.
