A rural Lexington man was arrested late Friday afternoon allegedly after ramming his pickup into another pickup as they traveled down Highway 30. The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office and Nebraska State Patrol investigated.
It stemmed from a report of a man who had dropped chicken cages off with a woman at a rural Lexington residence. As the man began driving away, his truck was apparently rammed by a pickup driven by the woman’s husband. The husband, identified as 42-year-old Gregorio Perez-Mendez, then reportedly continued to ram the man’s pickup on Highway 30.
The victim’s pickup was found to have damage to the rear, driver and passenger sides of the pickup. The suspect’s pickup was found to have damage to the front end.
Officers arrested Perez-Mendez at his residence. He is charged in Dawson County Court with Use of a Motor Vehicle to Commit a Felony, Attempted 2nd Degree Assault, Third Degree Domestic Assault, Criminal Mischief and Reckless Driving.
Bond has been set at 10% of $100,000 and the case continued to October 5, 2023 at 11:00 am in Dawson County Court.
