Two men arrested in Eagle after traffic stop
Cass County Sheriff William C. Brueggemann advised that on the evening of Tuesday 3-23-21 at approximately 2000 hours a Cass County Deputy made a traffic stop of a red Ford Explorer occupied by three males on F Street near Parkview Avenue in Eagle Nebraska for turn signal violation. During the stop it was discovered that the license plates on the vehicle were registered to a different white Ford Explorer. The driver of the vehicle was identified as JACKSON, MICHAEL (9-22-77) of Bennet. It was discovered that JACKSON had an active warrant out of Platte County in relation to a failure to pay child support case.
While the deputy was checking information on JACKSON and the vehicle one of the passengers of the vehicle, identified as SCHNEIDER, COREY (4-1-75) of Lincoln, got out of the vehicle and began to flee the traffic stop on foot. The deputy gave chase of SCHNEIDER who ran westbound down F Street and then ran into the back yard of a nearby residence. SCHNEIDER failed to comply with multiple commands given by the deputy who ultimately deployed his Taser in order to subdue SCHNEIDER. The other passenger in the vehicle, who is still unknown at this time, ran after SCHNEIDER and the deputy. After the deputy had deployed his Taser the unknown male began to advance on the deputy while making comments to "lay off" of SCHNEIDER. The deputy held the unknown male at gunpoint and issued commands for him to get on the ground, but ultimately the male fled the area. JACKSON also fled the area in the red Ford Explorer.
SCHNEIDER was found to have a warrant through the US Marshals for a probation violation in relation to an amphetamine possession case. Deputies recovered a baggie containing 8 grams of suspected methamphetamine from a trashcan near the house where SCHNEIDER was seen discarding it. SCHNEIDER was arrested for the outstanding warrant and charged with fugitive from justice, obstructing an officer, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of narcotic paraphernalia.
JACKSON later returned to the scene in a different vehicle and was arrested on his outstanding warrant. JACKSON was charged with fugitive from justice, displaying fictitious license plates, and misdemeanor operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest.
Both SCHNEIDER and JACKSON were booked into Cass County Jail.
