Scotts Bluff County Surveyor Scott Bosse was arrested Tuesday night at his rural Mitchell home on a felony firearm charge after a standoff with authorities.
Scotts Bluff County Chief Deputy Troy Brown says deputies were called to the scene to assist Game and Parks Conservation officer Scott Brandt, who went to the home to talk to Bosse about an alleged wildlife violation.
County Attorney Dave Eubanks said Bosse had a handgun when Brandt approached him outside the home, and the situation escalated quickly, at which time Bosse went inside.
The Nebraska State Patrol was called to assist and after five hours of negotiations, Bosse came out and was taken into custody on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm and obstructing Police.
Bosse is free on 10 percent of $60,000 cash bond.
