A Lincoln Police officer had already called for backup when he asked a driver to get out of the vehicle during a stop for a traffic violation. It's a good thing he made that call.
Sgt. Duane Winkler says the stop occurred a little before 3 a.m. Monday on the southeast side of downtown Lincoln.
Winkler says officer Luke Bonkiewicz was involved in a fight when the man who had been pulled over got out. The arriving officers found the two still fighting behind a nearby apartment building and arrested the driver.
The officer was treated at a hospital and released.
The driver's name hasn't been released yet.
