Lincoln police are forced to use a taser to subdue a suspect that fled from a traffic stop.
Officer Michon Morrow says just after 2 a.m. Wednesday police attempted to make a traffic stop near 27th and Kimco. Officers say the car's registration tags were expired. Morrow says that's when 24-year-old Erick Williams pulled into a parking lot and fled on foot.
Police say he scaled a fence and lost police for a while, but a police dog was called in and tracked Williams to a trailer park where officers found him hiding under a porch near 25th and Teresa.
But instead of giving up Williams tried to run again and was tasered by an officer.
He was taken to a hospital as a precaution and also given three staples for a cut to his head police believe he got from a fall while jumping fences.
Williams was wanted for absconding on parole for a previous drug charge and was lodged into the Lancaster County Diagnostic and Evaluation Center.
He was also cited for No Valid Registration, No Operator’s License, No Seat Belt, Fail to Comply and Trespassing.
