Wild video: Rampaging male uses skid loader to smash police cruiser, other vehicles in multiple parking lots

A rampaging male was caught on video using a skid loader to smash a police cruiser and other vehicles in multiple parking lots in Lincoln, Nebraska, over the weekend.

What are the details?

Officers were called around 2:30 p.m. Sunday to a business near 73rd Street and Pine Lake Road where 36-year-old Samuel Peyrot was driving a skid loader and damaging vehicles in the parking lot, police told KKLN-TV.

Peyrot then went to a Home Depot near 70th Street and Nebraska Parkway, where he rammed the skid loader into a police cruiser after an officer arrived on the scene, police told the station.

The officer exited the cruiser and drew his weapon, KKLN said, adding that police soon took Peyrot into custody without firing their guns:

Witness Zachary Martin jokingly told the station in an interview, "I guess Nebraska's the new Florida. I'm gonna start seeing 'Nebraska man' headlines everywhere."

Peyrot was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault on an officer, second-degree assault, and criminal mischief, KKLN said.

Police added that a man inside a truck suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident, and Peyrot damaged two nearby businesses and multiple vehicles, the station said.

Peyrot's employer owns the skid loader, police told KKLN, adding that the suspect had taken it to a gas station with a company-owned truck and trailer.

The station said an investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information can call police at 402-441-6000 or Crime Stoppers at 402-475-3600.
