Court Documents: Bunkswick, NE man expresses no remorse in trooper assault

Posted:

A Brunswick, Nebraska man who rammed his tractor into a state trooper's car, says he wishes officers would have killed him, according to court documents.

Thirty-eight-year-old Aaron White was extradited to the Madison County Jail from Sioux City today.

Cout documents reveal during that trip, White also told Antelope County Sheriff Robert Moore he wished he wouldn't have waited so long to try to take his kids out of their Plainview school.

White's wife filed a protection order two weeks before the incident, during which he tried to pull his kids out of school.  He was denied because of the protection order.

Authorities say he proceeded to drive his semitrailer 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.

White faces a charge of assaulting an officer.  His bond was set at a million dollars.
