Article: Man accused of trying to run over police officer

From the Las Vegas Optic

A Las Vegas man is now awaiting a trial date to face charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, a third degree felony, after he allegedly attempted to hit a Las Vegas police officer with his vehicle.

Officers with the Las Vegas Police Department arrested Jack Herrera, 37, of Las Vegas on July 26, 2018, charging him with aggravated assault upon a peace officer with a deadly weapon, and with resisting, evading an officer. The case has been progressing through the San Miguel Magistrate Court since late July, and was recently bound over for trial.

According to an arrest affidavit filed in magistrate court, Herrera had an outstanding felony warrant, and when LVPD officers learned he was at a motel in the 1100 block of Grand Ave, they attempted to locate him. An informant advised police Herrera was at the motel, and that he’d been driving a green Ford Explorer but might be attempting to leave the motel in a black Jeep.
