Lincoln Man Sentenced for Pulling Pellet Gun on Officer, Assault

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A 30-year-old man who drew a pellet gun on a Lincoln police officer has been sentenced to prison.

Carlos Sisneros was sentenced Tuesday to 15 months to 30 months in prison for convictions of third-degree assault on an officer and obstructing an officer.

Police say that on the night of July 30, a Lincoln police officer confronted Sisneros in a city park after receiving a report of a man sitting in a tree with binoculars. Police say that when the officer moved to search Sisneros, Sisneros reached for his waistband, yelled, "I have a gun," and pulled out a realistic looking pellet gun.

The 50-year-old officer disarmed Sisneros, tossed the pellet gun and the two scuffled before Sisneros was arrested.
