NPD: Omaha man arrested after multiple disturbances in Norfolk
NORFOLK, Neb. -- A 31-year-old Omaha man is in custody after multiple incidents in northeast Nebraska on Friday.
According to a press release, Norfolk Police officers were called to a business in the 200 block of Norfolk Avenue Friday night at 9:18 p.m. NPD had received reports of an intoxicated man who was initiating verbal arguments and refusing to leave the business.
According to Norfolk Police Capt. Michael Bauer, arriving officers spotted 31-year-old Connor Flood, who they reported showed signs of intoxication and aggression toward other bar patrons.
Staff at the business told officers that they no longer wanted him there and he was issued a written trespass warning by the officers. Flood received his written warning and left the property, Bauer said. As he was leaving, Bauer said, Flood challenged another man on the sidewalk.
About 30 minutes later, Bauer said, Flood was at a nearby gas station where patrons reported that he was causing more disturbances.
Staff there advised that he was harassing other customers and calling them names. He left just prior to NPD's arrival on the scene. At that point, Bauer said, Flood went directly back to the original business.
Officers made contact with Flood once again, noting that he was uncooperative and refused to speak to the officers.
According to Bauer, Flood soon ran from the officers and hid between parked cars. Officers located him and Flood once again tried to escape contact, Bauer said.
As he ran away, he fell down into the paved street causing minor injury to his hand and elbow, Bauer said.
Flood was placed under arrest for second-degree trespass, obstructing a police officer and two counts of disturbing the peace. He was held in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
