A man who fled from a Terrytown residence as Police responded to a noise disturbance in Terrytown early Wednesday morning kept officers at bay for an hour and a half while standing on a median between 10th Street and Terry Boulevard.
Captain Brian Wasson says 37 year old Jesse Salazar repeatedly threatened to kill officers with his hand concealed in his pocket while standing on the median. Court documents say officers had been told by people at 80 South Street, where the initial call came from at 3 a.m., that Salazar showed a gun. The documents say Salazar also advised officers he had a gun during the chase before the standoff.
Salazar, who was wanted on a warrant, was eventually tased and taken into custody at 4:45 a.m. No weapons were found on Salazar or in the nearby area.
Wasson says Salazar was arrested on suspicion of terroristic threats and resisting arrest. The warrant was issued after Salazar failed to appear for a District Court arraignment for attempted second degree assault, reckless driving and misdemeanor assault from a May 25th incident.
Gering Police and the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s office assisted in the incident.
