A Sargent, Nebraska man is facing felony charges after, police say, he went on a road rampage after smoking K2.

Lincoln Police said a little before 11 a.m. Sunday, a Lincoln man and his 8-year-old son were driving southbound on 27th, between 'A' and South streets, when a blue Dodge Intrepid rammed into the back of their car.

The victim started to pull over when the Dodge, driven by 29-year-old David Scott, slammed into the car for a second time. LPD said the victim then tried to drive away, but Scott continued to hit the car, pushing it down 27th Street.

At 27th and Sheridan, police said Scott swerved around the victim's car and continued south. A witness followed the Dodge to Tipperary Trail, got the license plate number and called police.

Police sent out a description of the car and it was later found, unoccupied, at 77th and Saltillo by Lancaster County Deputies.

Police said citizens noticed Scott and 22-year-old Trisha Buckley walk away from car. They were located shortly after 12 p.m. near 1st and Rokeby Rd.

After further investigation, police said both Scott and Buckley went to Dirt Cheap, purchased 'Zero-gravity' potpourri hypnotic and smoked it in the parking lot before leaving.

Scott was lodged for felony criminal mischief, inhalation of an intoxicating compound and possession of drug paraphernalia. Buckley, was cited and released.

Police said the estimated damage to the victim's car is $5,000.
