Man accused of fleeing police, hiding at Henry Doorly Zoo

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 33-year-old man is accused of fleeing police and trying to hide at Omaha’s zoo.

KETV reports that officers on patrol Tuesday noticed a wanted man driving a Chevy Silverado. When they tried to stop him, the man sped away.

Police say they later learned that the suspect jumped a fence from Interstate 80 and went onto the grounds of the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.

Officers found the man near the elephant exhibit.

He was booked on a misdemeanor warrant, driving under suspension, flight to avoid arrest and trespassing. His name was not released. It wasn’t immediately clear if formal charges have been filed.
