A 20 year old Omaha man is facing a long list of charges. Around 10:20 Sunday night officers tried to stop a white Ford pickup but the driver took off. Police tracked down the pickup a short time later but the driver took off again but this time aimed the vehicle at an officer.
Omaha’s police helicopter assisted officers on the ground locate the vehicle and they used stop sticks to bring an end to the chase. Police then took Jeffery Hotz into custody. He was booked for theft by receiving, flight to avoid arrest, attempt to assault an officer, robbery, use of a weapon to commit a felony, possession of a stolen firearm and bond review.
Authorities say the pickup Hotz was driving had been reported stolen in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Police are looking for a possible second suspect.
