A 25-year-old man whose car hit a Lincoln police officer has been given two-to-three years in prison.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/A6votn ) Christopher Lopour had pleaded no contest to assault. He was sentenced on Thursday.
Police say a traffic officer using a radar set waved over Lopour for speeding around 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 26. Lopour slowed, but then sped up. His car hit the officer, Ty Denney, who rolled on the car hood before falling to the pavement.
Denney suffered only minor injuries and returned to work later in the day.
A witness followed Lopour's car and called police.
