A 38-year-old Plainview, Nebraska man is being treated for a gunshot wound after ramming into a Nebraska state trooper's car with a tractor. The State Patrol says the altercation started Tuesday morning with Aaron White when he caused a disturbance at his children's school and made several threats at a convenience store. He then drove his semi-trailer rig to his farm near Brunswick and set it on fire. Then he started up the tractor and ran into outbuildings, a vehicle, and fuel tanks. When he rammed a patrol car, another state trooper fired and hit White. He was flown to Mercy Medical Center. The trooper was treated for minor injuries.
