Lincoln Police had difficulty early Sunday morning getting a man to jail, after he allegedly spat on one person and assaulted another inside Jake’s Cigar Bar near 14th and “P” Streets.
Police on Monday told KFOR News 37-year-old Bilal Amin ran from the scene, but was caught and put in the back of a police cruiser. Police say Amin allegedly brought his knees up to his chest and a struggle ensued. One officer was kicked in the chest and stomach before they could shut the door.
After taking him to jail, Amin allegedly spat on a police officer and two correctional officers.
Amin was arrested for resisting arrest, assault on a police officer and third-degree assault.
