For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska
United States Attorney Steven Russell announced today that Garry Hunter Little Walker, age 34, of Winnebago, Nebraska, was sentenced today in Omaha by Chief United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr., to a three-year term of probation for Assault on an Officer with Bodily Contact.
On June 3, 2022, Victim 1, an officer with the Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services was called to a residence near Lyndon Ave. in Rosalie, Nebraska, which is within the territorial confines of the Omaha Indian Reservation. Upon arrival, Victim 1 found Little Walker seated in the vehicle having an argument with his grandmother and the mother of his children. Victim 1 attempted to place Little Walker in handcuffs and Little Walker pushed Victim 1 and began running away. Victim 1 unsuccessfully attempted to deploy his taser twice. Little Walker ran into a house and shut and locked the door. Upon Victim 1 entering the house, he found Little Walker standing in the kitchen with his fists clenched and standing in a fighting posture. Little Walker stated he was not going to go to jail. When told he had very little options, Little Walker asked Victim 1, “How do you want it then? I’m going to rack real hard.” Victim 1 took a step toward Little Walker and Little Walker lifted his right hand and swung over his grandmother and struck Victim 1 in the left side of the head. Little Walker then grabbed Victim 1 by the head. Victim 1 lifted Little Walker and then took him to the ground. Little Walker would not let go of Victim 1’s head after repeated orders to let go. Little Walker then began reaching for Victim 1’s gun. Victim 1 pepper sprayed Little Walker and, in the process, incapacitated himself as well. Victim 1 while still suffering the effects of the pepper spray tried to take Little Walker out of the house. While doing so, Little Walker lunged at Victim 1 and elbowed him in the face before falling onto the ground. Victim 1 received his law enforcement training from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Academy and the Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services operates under a 638 contract.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services.
