UPDATE: 9 Charges in Lancaster County Court For Arrested Fugitive


LINCOLN, Neb. -- New details in the arrest of Jason Jackson. The US Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Jackson on April 6 based on his federal arrest warrant for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

He's now been charged with nine counts, including first false imprisonment, robbery and several other violations. Two of the charges stem from an incident back in March; resisting arrest and wreckless driving. Police say they found Jackson in a car on D Street in Lincoln. Officers ordered Jackson to the ground, but he got back into the car. Police documents say an officer grabbed Jackson, but he put the car in reverse and sped off. The car was found, but Jackson was not.

The other seven charges come from the April 2 incident at Stevens Creek Storage. Those charges include first degree false imprisonment, robbery, three counts of use of a weapon to commit a felony, possession of a firearm buy a prohibited person and terroristic threats.

Deputies initially arrested Jackson for attempted first degree attempted murder, but that was charge was amended to attempted kidnapping.

Police say Jackson met up with someone he knows at the storage unit, pointed a gun at him and demanded money. The documents say they began arguing. Jackson's brother showed up. Police say the brothers ordered the friend into a car, saying that they wanted to take him to a house in the county to talk about their conflicts. Police report that the friend felt he was going to be killed, and threatened to bust out the window if he wasn't let out. The brothers let the friend out of their car and he went to his vehicle. Documents say the friend took out a knife. That's when Jackson confronted him, saying that if he didn't get rid of the knife he would kill the friend. The friend threw the knife and ran to get away. Police say that's when Jackson fired a shot.

Police say witness reports and surveillance video support the report.

Jackson's brother has been arrested for aiding and abetting.

Jackson is being held on a million dollar bond.
