Man accused of injuring a trooper is requesting psychological evaluation

A man accused of ramming a Nebraska State Patrol car with his tractor wants a psychological evaluation.  The attorney for 38-year-old Aaron White of Brunswick filed a motion to determine if White is competent to stand trial.  He's also requesting that Wednesday's hearing in Neligh, and White's trial be delayed.  White is charged with criminal mischief and assault an officer.  In December, authorities say he used his tractor to damage buildings and ram a patrol car near Brunswick.

Sioux City police cars damaged in chase

Three Sioux City police cars got banged up during a high-speed chase with a suspected drunk driver.  An undercover officer started following the driver near 18th and Lewis Boulevard Tuesday night.  Two marked cars joined the pursuit near 27th and Chambers.  After leading officers to a dead end on Sycamore street, police say the man drove into a field, then came back out, and rammed three police cars.  None of the officers was hurt.  The man went to jail.

Siouxland cancer study looking for volunteers

The search is on for 700 Siouxland volunteers for a new cancer prevention study.  The American Cancer Society wants to track people over the next 20 years to look at factors like environment, behaviors, and family history.  Signup will be in late April.  The June E. Nylen Cancer Center, Mercy Medical Center and Saint Luke's Regional Medical Center are putting their support behind the project, along with media outlets including KTIV.
