Columbus Man Who Failed to Show up for His Jail Term Arrested on a Warrant

COLUMBUS, Neb. – A Columbus man was put in jail after he failed to show for his sentence last week.

18-year-old Tanner Strong did not arrive on February 21st for his scheduled jail sentence of 21 days, stemming from two misdemeanor convictions of assault and trespassing.

Records say a warrant for Strong’s arrest was issued on the 22nd and he was picked up three days later to serve his sentence.

Strong was originally charged with two felonies, but prosecutors dropped them to misdemeanor offenses in the plea bargain.
