Fairfield Man Arrested in Nebraska for Alleged Assault on Officer

Fairfield police said a convicted felon who tried to drive his Jaguar at police and fled earlier in November was arrested in Nebraska last week.

Officers went to a home on Dahlia Street on Nov. 1 looking for Robert Hanson, 47, of Fairfield during a narcotics investigation. When Hanson was located, he allegedly tried to use his 1994 gold Jaguar as a deadly weapon, prompting an officer to fire his gun, according to police. Hanson apparently escaped and police don't know if he suffered any injuries in the shooting.

Police said officers later found the Jaguar on Beck Avenue. Inside the vehicle officers found evidence of a marijuana butane lab and marijuana, according to police.

Detectives followed tips that Hanson may have fled the state, and on Nov. 18, Hanson was allegedly found by the Nebraska State Patrol. Police said Hanson was a passenger in a vehicle on a highway outside Nebraska City, Nebraska.

Hanson was arrested on a warrant and the state troopers found a short sword, knife, methamphetamine and marijuana in the vehicle, according to police.

Fairfield police officers flew to Nebraska last Tuesday to collect evidence and interview Hanson. Hanson will be extradited and face prosecution in Solano County for alleged assault on an officer with a vehicle and other offenses.
