OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police say they’ve arrested a 20-year-old man who fled from police before driving his truck toward an officer.

Officer Michael Pecha says the driver pulled over Sunday night before accelerating toward the officer. The chase had topped speeds of 70 mph through several residential neighborhoods.

Pecha says police used a helicopter to track the man before he was arrested.

The suspect was booked on various counts including avoiding arrest and attempted assault of an officer. It’s unclear if he’s been charged.

He is being held at the Douglas County jail on $25,000 bond.
