A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for areas west of Omaha until 11 p.m.; however, the metro area will likely have thunderstorms on and off throughout the overnight.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that an officer pulled over a car a little after 2:40 a.m. Thursday, suspecting the car driver was drunk.
The driver pulled over, but when he tried to put the
transmission into park, he put it into reverse. The car backed into the cruiser behind him.
Damage to both vehicles was estimated at under $300. No injuries were reported.
Police say the driver was taken to a detoxification facility and cited on suspicion of drunken driving.
