Omaha Police Pursue One Of Their Cruisers

Investigators say a man is being checked out at a hospital and will be taken into custody on a number of charges after leading law enforcement on a pursuit early Thursday morning in a stolen Omaha Police cruiser.

Police say officers were questioning the man near 10th and Abbott Drive, when he got naked, started damaging other vehicles, jumped into the cruiser and drove off.

The chase, reaching speeds of 70 MPH, wound from Carter Lake into North Downtown, west on Cuming Street before the "stop sticks" were used to disable the cruiser in north central Omaha, 60th and Lake Streets.

No injuries reported, though other vehicles were hit.
