It's not everyday the Sheriff arrests Jesse James but it happened Thursday just outside Lincoln.
Sheriff Terry Wagner arrrested Jesse James Wilson after the man ran from a deputy during a traffic stop.
Wagner said Wilson had a warrant for theft and when the truck he was riding in was pulled over by a deputy, he took off into a field near NW 48th and W Fletcher.
Deputies searched the area with a K-9 and a helicopter.
Wagner was in the area to help coordinate the search and spotted Wilson heading to a nearby house.
Wagner was in an unmarked car and not in uniform. When he saw Wilson he pulled into the driveway. Wilson didn't appear to recognize Wagner as a law enforcement officer and actually asked him for a drink. Instead Wagner arrested him.
Wilson was lodged for his warrant for felony theft.
