By The Mercury

An 18-year-old Nebraska man was arrested early Sunday morning for allegedly pushing an officer after police investigated reports of underage drinking at a house party in the 800 block of Bluemont Avenue.

Sgt. Brad Ingalls said Nicholas Palacio, Omaha, was arrested for battery against a law enforcement officer, interference with law enforcement and minor in consumption of alcohol, after officers made contact with Palacio at a house party on 823 Bluemont Avenue at about 12:10 a.m.

Ingalls said Palacio reportedly pushed an officer and took off running, before he was apprehended a block away.

Palacio was released on $5,000 bond.
