A U.S. Marshal had an unexpected visitor when he recently entered Omaha Police headquarters. Police say a man was standing just inside the doorway with his hand balled up into a fist.

The incident was reported at 1:15 p.m. July 22. According to police, U.S. Marshal Chris Cicha was in uniform. He repeatedly ordered the man to drop his fist and step out of the building. After the man refused, he moved toward Cicha and punched him in the face with his fist, bloodying the U.S. Marshal’s nose.

Officers then pushed the man to the wall and then the ground where they were able to get him under control with the use of two sets of handcuffs. It wasn’t easy. Officers had to command him several times to get on the ground and put his hand behind his back.

They were eventually able to get 29-year-old Jackson Nelson under control. He was booked for assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.
