NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - A western Nebraska man accused of trying to run over his son-in-law has been given a year of probation.

North Platte television station KNOP says (https://bit.ly/1fDHHZv ) 67-year-old Ted Evans made a deal with Lincoln County prosecutors. He pleaded no contest to assault and attempted terroristic threats.

The incident occurred Aug. 26, not long after Evans’ son-in-law, Lawrence Kidd, was released from jail after serving time for domestic assault.

Witnesses say that as Evans aimed his vehicle at Kidd and tried to run over him, Evans drove through the backyard of Kidd’s home and into a neighbor’s yard.
