Sheriff Arrests Jesse James

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.
