A teenager, who is no stranger to police, was back in court Tuesday morning after allegedly cutting off his ankle bracelet while on parole.

Nineteen-year-old Michael Goynes is charged with possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and obstruction of justice. A judge set bond at ten percent of $105,000 ($100,000 for the possession charge and $5,000 for obstruction).

According to prosecutors, Omaha police responded to a shots fired call on April 11. When they arrived at the scene, several cars were fleeing; Goynes allegedly got out of the car he was in and tried to run on foot.

Police arrested Goynes, who had been wanted since he allegedly cut off his ankle bracelet. They also reported finding a 9mm gun beneath the driver's seat of the vehicle Goynes was in.

Goynes is expected back in court for a preliminary hearing on May 13.

He was on parole after serving two and a half years in prison on gun charges. He was arrested at age 16 and tried as an adult. You may also remember Goynes from a 2008 officer-involved shooting.
