A Lincoln man faces additional criminal charges after fleeing from deputies

LINCOLN, Neb. (COLOGNE) – A Lincoln man is facing additional criminal charges after fleeing from law enforcement on Friday.

Cameron Linderman, 24, is being held for domestic assault, obstructing an officer and resisting arrest on May 25, authorities said.

The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office was called to a domestic disturbance call in the Pine Lake area on May 24 just before 11:40 p.m. , and started running with a knife.

On Wednesday night, LSO learned that Linderman was near 140th and West Holdridge. The LSO, Lincoln Police Department and Seward County Sheriff’s Office, along with Nebraska State Patrol drones, searched for Linderman for four hours but were unable to locate him. Thursday morning, LSO received a report of a suspicious party at the women’s bathroom in Pawnee Lake. As deputies approached the bathroom, Linderman ran into the lake and swam through it, evading arrest, LSO said.

An NSP helicopter was overhead during the chase and found Linderman hiding in some nearby trees. NSP’s K-9 found Linderman and bit him. He was later taken into custody and taken to an area hospital for the bite and broken arm.

LSO said Linderman faces a charge of third-degree domestic assault, a felony due to a prior conviction. Linderman is awaiting trial for another domestic assault case.
