On February 22, 2019, officers observed a 2008 Jetta parked in a handicapped stall at America’s Best Hotel parking lot. Officers ran a data check on the plates and determined that the plates belonged to another vehicle. Officers made contact with the vehicle and observed four occupants. The officer ran a data check and learned that Stine was a convicted sex offender who had a warrant out for his arrest out of Kansas. The officers attempted to remove Stine from the vehicle and he resisted. A Taser was utilized and he fell out of the vehicle, dropping a short shotgun. Stine has a prior felony conviction and is prohibited from possessing a firearm.
This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
