An Omaha man was booked on suspicion of multiple counts of attempted felony assault on an officer and vehicle theft after crashing a white pickup truck into a downtown parking garage Friday night.
Jesse Fields, 33, of Omaha was arrested after police pursued the vehicle — reported stolen Thursday evening by a U-Haul dealer at 90th and Maple Streets — Thursday and Friday nights.
Police give this account:
Officers found the vehicle Thursday night and tried to stop it by parking a cruiser behind the truck, but the driver revved the engine and rammed into the police cruiser and almost struck an officer. He pulled forward and sped toward another officer, who got out of the way before being struck.
