Officers find deputy's vehicle, escaped inmate still on the loose

Officers find deputy's vehicle, escaped inmate still on the loose

A Nebraska State Penitentiary prisoner overpowered a deputy during a transport to Dodge County and fled in a stolen government vehicle west of Ithaca in Saunders County, according to scanner traffic.

Sheriff Jefferey Danker said deputies apprehended Scott without incident and found a handgun in his possession just after noon. Scott, who was being transported from Lincoln to Dodge county for a court hearing on several child sexual assault charges, is still at large.

NSP has utilized the Aviation Support Division and Troopers on the ground in cooperation with the Saunders County Sheriff's Office, Dodge County Sheriff's Office and other agencies. He later left that vehicle at Nebraska Furniture Mart in Omaha.

Scott got the irons around the deputy's neck and forced him to pull off onto a gravel road in Saunders County, Glass said.




He was said to be wearing a khaki prison uniform and was last seen driving south in a Chevrolet Impala.

Scott is serving 2-4 years for fifth-offense DUI. Anyone that comes in contact with Scott is advised not to approach him and immediately call 9-1-1.

Some of those charges have been enhanced because Scott is already a registered sex offender. The caller reported they thought the man was the same one that escaped from Nebraska law enforcement on Wednesday.
