Suspect Kicks Correction Officer In Groin After Arrest For Meth Possession

Lincoln Police officer Luke Bonkiewicz reports officers were sent to an apartment complex in the 800 block of South 11th Street just before 1 AM Monday on a call that a man was passed out inside one of the apartment’s hallways.

When they arrived, they contacted 43-year-old Jose L Enriquez, of Lincoln, who was so inebriated officers made the call to put him into protective custody.

A search was conducted and officers located a suspected meth pipe in one pocket, multiple baggies with trace amounts of suspected meth in another pocket and tangible amounts of meth in other pockets for a total of around 3 grams.

Bonkiewicz says when officers transported Enriquez to jail, he refused to provide a fingerprint and began kicking a corrections officer in his groin, causing mild discomfort but no injuries.

Enriquez was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, assault on a healthcare professional and criminal trespass.
