A man (Joseph K. Black) is in police custody after leading law enforcement on a chase across four counties. The pursuit started in Omaha, after the suspect struck a police cruiser early Monday morning.
Omaha police were called to a home near 45th & Douglas St. just before 3 a.m.
Sergeant Charles Ott says they were called to the scene to check on a man reportedly having a psychotic episode. When they arrived, Ott says the man in question “was getting into his vehicle, backed out at a high rate of speed and struck [an] officer’s cruiser.”
Police followed the man westbound on Dodge street. That chase eventually took officers to Interstate 680 and then Interstate 80.
The Nebraska State Patrol picked up the search in Sarpy County and several law enforcement agencies followed the vehicle through Cass into Lancaster County.
The vehicle in question went off-road at the Interstate 80 exit on 56th St. in Lincoln.
Reports from the scene indicate the man ran out of the vehicle and was quickly apprehended by Lincoln police.
No injuries have been reported. The police cruiser sustained minimal damage.

Much of it Joseph K. Black did riding on the car’s rims after police used spike strips several times; each time the strips punctured the car’s tires.
When Black’s car finally was forced off the road by troopers in Lincoln, he jumped out of the SUV holding a small dog and pointing his finger at officers, making a shooting sound. He was uncooperative and was tased by a Lancaster County deputy.
The chase started at 3:18 a.m. when police tried to stop Black’s car near 40th and Dodge. He’d been involved in a disturbance at a house and smashed into a police cruiser as he drove to get away.
The pursuit last about 35 minutes, started in Omaha and crossed into Sarpy, Cass and Lancaster counties.
He could be booked for leaving the scene of a hit and run, and flight to avoid arrest.

Omaha man caught after early morning pursuit
by The North Platte Bulletin
A 32-year-old Omaha man is in custody after leading officers on an early morning chase, officials said Monday
Around 3:18 a.m., the Omaha Police Department attempted to stop a vehicle near 40th and Dodge. The driver had been involved in a disturbance at a residence and struck an OPD cruiser as he was attempting to drive away, Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said.
The Omaha policeman pursued west on I-80 to the Douglas/Sarpy County line, where the Nebraska State Patrol took over the pursuit, which continued west on I-80 and reached speeds of 80 mile an hour, Collins said.
Spikes strips were used several times, each time puncturing tires on the vehicle. Near 56th St. interchange (mile marker 405), troopers forced the vehicle off the road. The vehicle went into the north ditch, then up and over an embankment before stopping in a marshy area on the north side of I-80.
Once the vehicle stopped, the driver, Joseph K. Black, 32, Omaha, got out of the SUV holding a small dog. He pointed his finger at officers and made shooting noises, Collins said. Black was tased by a Lancaster County deputy and taken into custody. He was cited for flight to avoid arrest, driving under suspension and driving without headlights, then taken to Omaha and placed in the custody of the OPD.
The pursuit lasted approximately 35 minutes in four counties (Douglas, Sarpy, Cass, and Lancaster) and reached speeds of 80 mph.
Agencies involved include OPD, NSP, LSO and the Lincoln Police Department, Collins said.
