Former Omaha Police Sergeant Lance Harrison was sentenced to 120 days in jail Monday for making terroristic threats. Harrison was arrested in 2010 after a road rage incident.

Harrison was also sentenced to serve five years probation once he is released from jail.

During his trial in October 2011, a Sarpy County jury was told Harrison pulled his service weapon on a motorist who followed Harrison for five miles. The motorist thought Harrison was driving drunk.

Prosecutors described Harrison as a cop who thought he was above the law.

The defense called the other motorist, Jona Zook, a liar who embellished his story. Harrison claimed he never pointed a gun to Zook’s head and did not terrorize him.
